Whilst we in Britain
spend time tossing and eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, others around the world in Venice, Rio, New Orleans, etc. enjoy
the carnival celebrations which culminate in Mardi Gras ('Fat Tuesday') on the same day.
Although Mardi Gras isn't
officially celebrated in the UK, chances are your pub, club or workplace might use it as any excuse for some fundraising -
or just some fun!
