Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday, Mardi Gras...the day before Ash Wednesday goes by many names depending on where you're from. The Archdiocese of St. John's, Nfld., has this backgrounder on the last day before Lent. (It's a year old, so the date of Ash Wednesday is wrong.) And for Olympic visitors, check here if you're looking for ashes tomorrow in the Archdiocese of Vancouver.
