Do you enjoy Mardi Gras? Check out this post:

Posted on February 20, 2020 in 2020 Spring Gift Guide

  1. Mardi Gras marks the end of Carnival season. The Carnival season begins on January 6th, the Epiphany and lasts until the day before Ash Wednesday.
  2. In French, Mardi Gras means “Fat Tuesday.” The day represents the last hurrah of sorts leading up to the start of Lent, the 40 days of fasting before Easter.
  3. Pope Gregory XIII made Mardi Gras a holiday in 1582 by adding it to his Gregorian calendar the day before Ash Wednesday. The LeMoyne brothers brought the holiday to North America in the late 17th century.
  4. Mardi Gras is celebrated around the world. In Ireland, England, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, it is also known as “Pancake Day.” The holiday is celebrated by eating pancakes and participating in pancake-themed activities.
  5. The first Mardi Gras celebrations took place in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. The city hosts the second largest party after New Orleans.
  6. The first Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans took place in 1837. It wasn’t until 1857 that floats appeared in the parade.
  7. If you’re going to ride on a float in the Mardi Gras parade, you’re required by law to wear a mask. The tradition of wearing a mask started to rid society of the social constraints for the holiday. Different classes and groups could mingle freely during the festivities.
  8. Beads aren’t the only things thrown into the crowd during the Mardi Gras parade. People throw stuffed animals, toys, candy and more.
  9. Green, purple and gold are the official colors of Mardi Gras. Each color is said to represent different things. Green for faith, purple for justice and gold for power.

Go here, to get Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Joker, or Harley Quinn mask.  Or do what I did, and print them all!

Crooked Brook Giveaway Ends 3.9.20

Posted on February 20, 2020 in Giveaways

This is an amazing giveaway.  Make sure you enter on the form below, and Good Luck!

Welcome to the Crooked Brook & Fort Schuyler Giveaway!

One Lucky Winner Will Receive a Fleece Blanket,

Fleece Jacket AND Embroidered Patches!

Giveaway Hosted by Mommy’s Playbook

 

Fleece Facts You Need to Know

Polyester fleece blankets and jackets are made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or other synthetic fibers and can also be made out of recycled PET bottles or even recycled fleece. Polyester fleece is lightweight, warm, soft, and hydrophobic, holding less than 1% of its weight in water which allows it to retain much of its insulating powers even when wet.

Polyester fleece is machine washable, dries quickly and is very breathable and will not lose its thickness when compressed; it does not matter if you crush, pull, twist or wad it up, it will come back to its original shape and thickness.

The Difference Between Fleece Blankets and Fleece Throws

About Fleece Blankets, Fleece Throws, Fleece Throw Blankets: Fleece blankets are also called “fleece throws” or “fleece throw blankets”, but there is a difference. Fleece blankets run in sizes that correspond with bedding dimensions; king, queen, full, twin and baby.

Fleece throws or fleece throw blankets are smaller than a twin blanket (but bigger than a baby blanket) which is the perfect size to “throw” over your lap or shoulders. Fleece throws are popular at outdoor sporting events (especially when personalized with a team logo or mascot) which are why fleece throws are sometimes called stadium blankets.

Regardless of the size, the words “fleece blankets”, “fleece throw blankets”, “fleece throws” or “stadium blankets” are used interchangeably.

Did You Know You Can Buy Wholesale Fleece Blankets? Most people think you need a resale certificate to buy wholesale fleece blankets, however; many vendors will sell them at wholesale with a one case minimum. To get the best price when buying fleece blankets, use your favorite search engine to find a company that sells “wholesale fleece blankets” or “fleece blankets bulk”.

Quick Fact About Fleece Jackets, Fleece Pullovers: fleece jackets have a full zipper front whereas fleece pullovers have ½ or ¼ zipper fronts.

Quick Fact About Fleece Jackets, Fleece Pullovers: Although the words “fleece jackets” and “fleece pullovers” are sometimes used interchangeably, there IS a difference: fleece jackets have a full zipper front whereas fleece pullovers have ½ or ¼ zipper fronts.
