Today is Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent begins. It is the day for making final preparations for the penitential season by making a feast of all the fat in the house that won't be used during the Lenten fast (pancakes are traditional) and by seeking forgiveness of one's sins. Anton Checkhov's short story "Shrove Tuesday" is here.
