Fat Thursday is a traditional Christian feast marking the last Thursday before Lent. It is associated with the celebration of Carnival. Because Lent is a time of fasting, the days leading up to Ash Wednesday provide the last opportunity for feasting until Laetare Sunday and after that not until Easter.
