Fox 2 local news in St. Louis talked about getting ready for Mardi Gras this morning. The discussion stopped me in my walk through the living room. I mean, Mardi Gras already? We haven't even taken down the Christmas lights and they're telling us to start thinking about Mardi Gras?
That got me thinking, when is Easter this year? Well, it's early--March 31st which means Fat Tuesday is February 12 and Ash Wednesday is the 13th. Even before Valentine's Day this year.
