Letter: What to give up as Fat Tuesday approaches?
To the Editor:
The day before Lent begins is called Mardi Gras, which means Fat Tuesday in French. Some sources call it Shrove Tuesday or Shrive Tuesday, meaning “to confess.” According to my Internet source, Mardi Gras has been around for some time, having been observed long before Europeans came to America.
During the six weeks of Lent, it is customary to give up a favorite food item or habit.
