The time of celebration comes to

an end on Shrove Tuesday as we

enjoy one last “fat” meal before the first day of Lent,

Shrove Tuesday is observed by many Christians, who make a particular point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they especially need to ask God's help in dealing with. The expression Shrove Tuesday comes from the word shrive, meaning absolve

This is the last day of the Christian liturgical season before the

penitential Lent, and is related to popular practices, such as indulging

in food that one might give up as their Lenten sacrifice for the

upcoming forty days.
