Today is Mardi Gras. Throughout the world, people are stuffing their faces tonight, in preparation for the fasting they'll be doing during the period of Lent, which starts tomorrow.

1 And I'm not just saying this because us Jews typically celebrate Christian holidays by watching movies. This is how the day has always been celebrated, all the way back to Jesus.
