Shrove Tuesday is commonly known in English-speaking countries associated with the United Kingdom and its Anglican traditions. The celebratory aspect of the day developed long before the Protestant Reformation, and was associated with releasing high spirits before the somber season of Lent. It is analogous to the continuing Carnival tradition associated with Mardi Gras.
