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 2011 falls on March 8th.
