Mardi Gras beads hang from a bedroom mirror, January 6, 2016, in Coden, Alabama. The first weekend in January kicks off the official Mobile Mardi Gras season with a parade in Dauphin Island, Alabama. Though the New Orleans Mardi Gras is better known, the tradition originated in Mobile in 1703. The traditional colors are purple, green, and gold, representing justice, faith, and power. Mardi Gras represents a time of celebration and revelry leading up to Ash Wednesday and the somber days of Lent. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
