"Grew up in Louisiana and we have the Monday and Tuesday off of school for Mardi Gras. One of my cousins went to college out-of-state. When I was talking to her mom, my aunt, about when Cousin would next be able to come home for a visit, I mentioned since she had off for Mardi Gras, she would be able to come home and make it a long weekend. I was then informed that only Louisiana does that. mind blown"
