Fat Tuesday Around the World

Today is the day-before-Lent, aka Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Paczki Day...so many names for one day of revelry.  Most Americans are familiar with some Mardi Gras traditions, but did you know about:

The Goan Carnival in India

Brazilian Samba Schools

The Mystic Societies of Mobile, Alabama and the Krewes of New Orleans

Pazcki Day in Polish-American communities

What do YOU do for Fat Tuesday?

It's far from a tradition, but this year's Fat Tuesday involved the consumption of Girl Scout cookies.

Ooh, I like that tradition! Still waiting for my Girl Scouts to deliver their cookies...
