Shrove Tuesday

The expression "Shrove Tuesday" comes from the word shrive, meaning "confess". 
Shrove Tuesday is observed by many Christians, who "make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they especially need to ask God's help in dealing with." 

The season of Lent begins tomorrow.
