What am I celebrating?

February 28, 2017

Happy Pancake Day – I mean Fat Tuesday- I mean Carnivale or Karneval – I mean Shrove Tuesday – I mean Lupercalia (where did that come from?)

Today is Mardi Gras

This celebration has its roots in a number of different traditions, both religious and pagan.

So eat your King Cake, pancakes, paczkis, jambalaya, fastlagsbulle, and celebrate.
