Shrove Tuesday

February 17, 2015 all-day

Also known as Pancake Day in some parts of Canada. It is the day before the long fast for Lent for some Christians. It is also known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras. Because of our cold weather, Toronto celebrates it as the Caribbean Carnival in July and August. Some Christian traditions like the Orthodox started fasting earlier.
