Mythology Bacchus, The God of Wine and Vegetation
Bacchus, in mythology, was the god of wine and vegetation. He showed mortals how to cultivate grapevines and make wine. As the son of Zeus, Bacchus is usually characterized in one of two ways: First, as the god of vegetation specifically of the fruit of the trees. Eventually, he became the popular god of wine and cheer, and wine miracles were reputedly performed at certain of his festivals. According to tradition, Bacchus died each winter and was reborn in the spring. To his followers, this cyclical revival, accompanied by the seasonal renewal of the fruits of the earth, embodied the promise of the resurrection of the dead. The yearly rites in honor of the resurrection of Bacchus gradually evolved into the structured form of the drama, and important festivals were held in honor of the god, during which great dramatic competitions were conducted.
The Phoenix A Phoenix is a mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends) It has a 500 to 1,000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of myrrh twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self.
Please note: because New Orleans is hosting the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII, Mardi Gras festivities will pause for
(AIEEE! We gon pass a good time here! , cher!) 9 days during the Carnival season, and then resume after the Super Bowl. Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday", is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Most visitors will plan to arrive no later than Saturday, February 9, 2013 in order to enjoy an extended weekend of festivities.
