Although Mardi Gras was celebrated this past weekend, the real “Mardi Gras day” is tomorrow. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, which refers to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. According to About.com, many Catholic countries have acquired this tradition of feasting right before the beginning of the fasting season, which starts with Ash Wednesday.
