A new holiday has emerged in the South. The holiday brought some good cheer to folks in Alabama and out West. The pandemic may have allowed holiday creativity for an alternate Mardi Gras.

It’s not just southerners who dislike Yankees. (people from northeast united states) People from the midwest and western mountain states don’t like getting lumped in with the term “Yankee.”

Julie Morrison from Mobile Alabama, said: “I’m from Montana, and I think northeasterners are assholes too. I don’t like Yankees either.”

A large group of western and midwestern transplants decided to do something about it. They decided to make a holiday called “Yankee Gras”. Yankee Gras is a holiday where both southerners and polite midwesterners can bag on northeasterners for being rude.

It just goes along with Mardi Gras, and you can wear beads and throw hotdogs at mannequins with top hats.

Yankee Gras is a celebration of not being a northeastern ass hole. Hot dogs, top hats, and sample carpet in bags are all ok as long as everyone agrees that northeasterners are jerks.
