Mardi Gras lands on March 4th this year.  While that doesn’t give you much time to make travel arrangements to New Orleans, you do have plenty of time to prepare your house for your own personal celebration. Mardi Gras, also called Fat Tuesday, is widely accepted as the one last big bash to eat, drink, and be merry before the season of Lent begins, a time when observers of the holiday typically fast and cut back on indulgences. (For us at HalloweenCostumes.com, it’s just one more excuse to dress up!)

Thanks to social media, tales of stray dogs wandering around various Sochi Winter Olympic arenas traveled far and wide this year. But a few extra pooches pale in comparison to the issues that 1992 Olympians faced. World class skiers not only faught for world records that year...they also faught for their lives!

Perhaps because of cover-up attempts, or perhaps because Twitter wasn't around as a means to spread the madness, many of us still remain unaware of the 16-bit SkiFree Snow Monster attacks that wreaked havoc during the Albertville, France games. We won't be in the dark any longer:

For some people this holiday is just representative of slick consumerism, an invention of greeting card companies, but for others it's a beautiful excuse to celebrate romance, candy hearts, and everything saccharine. It's probably a little bit of both, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun, right? That's why...

Super Bowl XLVIII is just around the corner and football fever is sweeping the nation!  Folks are eager to get their hands on any Super Bowl related media they can in anticipation, and we have JUST the thing to feed that need! Well...sorta. Chances are you've heard of the Super Bowl Shuffle, that awesomely cheesy 1980's rap song performed by the Chicago Bears?

 

The Superbowl Shuffle Still

Yeah. That one.

 

While that was busy climbing the Billboard charts and selling over a half a million copies, ANOTHER piece of 1980's video footage managed to slip through the cracks...it got "lost in the shuffle," if you will. We found it, and it's epic! All of your favorite 80's heroes got together to spit some raps of their own, in what we're dubbing "The SuperHERO Shuffle."

 

The Superhero Shuffle

Yes, this is real...
