Why Is Today Unlike Any Other Tuesday?

It’s an interesting confluence of politics (Super Tuesday) and religion (Shrove Tuesday, aka Fat Tuesday, aka Mardi Gras).

Fat Tuesday and St. Valentine’s Day occasionally fall on the same day, too, though given the wandering nature of the Easter calendar, I would suspect that it’s an infrequent occurance.

Are you giving anything up for Lent?
