Tuesday” celebration - In ancient times the Lenten fast included a fast from
dairy and flour in addition to a fast from meat and poultry. In order
not to waste these precious food supplies, the family dinner the night
before Ash Wednesday was prepared using all the flour, oil and dairy
products in the pantry. This tradition became known as “Fat Tuesday”.
