Acadania, Louisiana
In rural Cajun areas, Mardi Gras is celebrated the way other places celebrate Halloween, with costumed disguises and going from house to house begging for treats. This day is called the "Courir de Mardi Gras" and comes from the way medieval France celebrated Mardi Gras, which settlers brought to Louisiana with them in centuries past.
