    Whether you're hitting the Mardi Gras parade route or dancing it up at a Mardi Gras party,this shirtis the perfect way to show off your love for the holiday. Maybe the classic green, gold, and purple color combo haven't won you over just yet—but after a few wears, we're confident it will!

    2. Geaux Big or Geaux Home

    Geaux Big Or Geaux Home T-Shirt

    If you're from Louisiana, you already know what this one means. And if anyone asks, you can memorize and repeat the following super thrilling explanation:

    "Geaux big or geaux home" is a phrase often used to encourage someone to take bold or risky action. The term is a play on words that combines the French word "geaux," which is a shortened form of "allez," meaning "go," with the English phrase "go big or go home."

    Essentially, the phrase states you should either go all out and give something your all, or don't bother doing it. It's encouraging someone to take a chance and be bold rather than playing it safe or holding back.

    Got it? Good. Now it's time to hit the French Quarter.

    3. Let’s Get Cray
