It's Byzantine Mardis Gras
Otherwise known as Meatfare Sunday, which is the last day that we can eat meat, if we follow the traditional fast. (Fasting is optional. Like heaven.) I invite you to join us in this practice. Next Sunday will be the last day to eat dairy products. There isn't so much a restriction on how much you can eat, but if all you can eat is non-meat, non-dairy, you won't want to eat that much anyway. Eventually, you dream of cheeseburgers. The feasting on Easter Sunday really feels like feasting! I usually can feast simply on a buttered roll, by that point.
