It might just be human nature. Prior to entering into a season of penance and mortification, we like to “live it up” one last time. Of course, as Catholic Christians, we want to feast when the Church feasts, and fast when the Church fasts. Not that Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is a day specifically set aside by the Church for “feasting” in any particular sense. On Tuesday, we want to talk about what you do – or don’t do – on the day before Ash Wednesday, perhaps to enjoy something you love one final time for at least forty days. Or, do you spend Fat Tuesday spiritually preparing to get your Lent started the next day? Should be in interesting and enlightening discussion.
