Happy Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday

Mardi Gras refers to events of the Carnival celebrations, beginning on or after Epiphany, and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday, which is also known as Shrove Tuesday.ย Mardi Grasย isย Frenchย for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritualย Lenten sacrificesย andย fastingย of theย Lentenย season.

Shrove Tuesdayย (also known inย Commonwealthย countries andย Irelandย asย Pancake Tuesdayย orย Pancake Day) is the day in February or March immediately precedingย Ash Wednesdayย (the first day ofย Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consumingย pancakes. In others, especially those where it is calledย Mardi Grasย or some translation thereof, this is aย carnivalย day, and also the last day of “fat eating” or “gorging” before the fasting period of Lent

Related popular practices are associated withย Shrovetideย celebrations before the fasting and religious obligations associated with theย penitentialย season of Lent. In countries such as theย United Kingdom, Mardi Gras is also known as Shrove Tuesday, which is derived from the wordย shrive, meaning “to administer the sacrament ofย confessionย to; to absolve”.

Mardi Gras, as a celebration of life before the more-somber occasion of Ash Wednesday, nearly always involves the use of masks and costumes by its participants. In New Orleans, for example, these often take the shape of fairies, animals, people from myths, or various Medieval costumesย as well as clowns and Indians (Native Americans).ย However, many costumes today are simply elaborate creations of colored feathers and capes. Unlikeย Halloweenย costumery, Mardi Gras costumes are not usually associated with such things as zombies, mummies, bats, blood, and the like, though death may be a theme in some. The Venice tradition has brought golden masks into the usual round of costumes
