Fat Tuesday is here, and traditionally that means a day set aside for eating jelly-filled donuts, parties and fun!
I love this time of year, and in the past have been a part of eating contests to commemorate the beginning of the Lenten season. One year I even took home the trophy for wining the cheeseburger eating contest at K & L Lanes in Gowanda! I can't really eat like that anymore, but I do like to celebrate in some way on Fat Tuesday.
But as Lent begins tomorrow, on Ash Wednesday, I have been thinking about the significance of the date that it falls on.
