Feb 24 2020, 3:30 pm

Welcome to Fat Tuesday AKA the day before Ash Wednesday AKA Mardi Gras Day AKA Shrove Day.

For those who aren’t aware of what the day entails, it’s an opportunity for religious folk to gorge themselves on whatever food they’re deciding to give up during the next few weeks of Lent.

Here are five events that don’t have to do with Fat Tuesday in any way, besides, of course, sharing the same date: February 25.
