Birthdays And Anniversaries For February 9th + Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday
If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as two names in country music. Ernest Tubb, born near Crisp, Texas, in 1914. A 1965 inductee in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry member forms a lengthy career with a rich baritone and ingratiating sincerity, recording his signature "Walkin' The Floor Over You" in 1941.
Also born in this date:
Travis Tritt, in Marietta, Georgia, in 1963. He mixes southern rock, soul and country influences in such 1990s and 2000s hits as "It's A Great Day To Be Alive," "Here's A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)" and "T-R-O-U-B-L-E".
Happy 53rd, Travis!
This Is Mardi Gras-Fat Tuesday!
Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday. It is also known as Mardi Gras Day or Shrove Day. A day when people eat all they want of everything and anything as the following day is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of a long fasting period for Christians.
Fat Tuesday is a celebration and the opportunity to enjoy that favorite food, drink or snack that you give up for the long Lenten season.
