Festival Article of the Month
Mardi-Gras (French for "Fat Tuesday") is the day before Ash Wednesday, and is also called "Shrove Tuesday" or "Pancake Day". It is the final day of Carnival (English IPA: [kaː(ɹ)nɨvəl]). It is a celebration that is held just before the beginning of the Christian liturgical season of Lent.
