Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday

Today is Shrove Tuesday, the last day before Lent.

In Rio they call it Carnival, and go about like this:
In New Orleans they call it Mardi Gras and this happens:

In London we call it Pancake Day and this is how we roll:

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. Which - without giving away too much of TLOML's identity - is brilliant. Because it is the day he arrives in London to start our new life. Despite my Christian upbringing, I'll be celebrating Ash Wednesday with a joyful exuberance this year.
