28 February 2017


Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the day many Christians around the world begin a traditional fast before Easter, this year for 46 days. Custom also has it that the days and weeks before Lent be given up to revelry and indulgence -- the great Carnival on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the famous masked balls of Venice and costume parties and parades elsewhere. In Britain the last day before Lent is celebrated by boisterous crowds dressed in costumes, who race down streets flipping pancakes. Selah Hennessy has more.
