Mardi Gras will be early this year

It’s the beginning of a new year. We’ve celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Next on the horizon will be Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras is early again, Feb. 13. And in 2019, Mardi Gras is really late -- March 5.
So why isn’t Mardi Gras on the same day every year, like Christmas? It’s all about Easter, which isn’t on the same day every year.
Listen up, because this involves math, astronomy and religion.
