What is Fat Tuesday you ask....
It's celebrations that include lots of feasting, partying and parading on the big day just before Ash Wednesday - when the Church rules of fasting take effect.
It's been that way in Christian countries around the world since the Middle Ages. Today most of the world's celebrations occur during the week of Fat Tuesday, which in 2010 falls on February 16. (provided by internet research)
