Here is a brief summary of the meaning “Fat” Tuesday …

In Louisiana, we celebrate Mardi Gras season.  It is a popular cultural experience, but its roots trace back to eating richer, fatty foods in preparation for Lenten fasting on “Fat” Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.

Happy Fat Tuesday everyone, “Laissez les bon temps rouler”!
