Shrove Tuesday

Says my husband this evening, after spending the day snowboarding in Austria with his colleague and friend R, "I wasn't sure why I didn't have to go to work today, so I looked it up on the Internet. It's called Shrove Tuesday." (a.k.a. Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday)

I thought you might like to know that my husband has had the past two days off from work. Why? Oh, yeah, it's Fasnacht Day. Duh! It seems any holiday that pops up, Isaiah gets to skip work in its observance. That's because he works in Liechtenstein. If Switzerland is the land of cheese, then Liechtenstein is the land of bank and public holidays.
