History of Fat Thursday
Fat Thursday hasn't been always on Thursday. 600 years ago it was celebrated one day before Ash Wednesday.
In Middle Ages it was said that it is our duty to eat as many fattening meals as cat wags its tail.
To XIX century Fat Thursday was fete reserved for women. It was celebration for married women and young girls.
Fat Thursday begins last week of Carnival. This day is last Thursday before Lend.
The date of this celebration depends on time of Easter so Fat Thursday is movable feast.
Unfortunately, although Fat Thursday is a fete, it's not day off.
