Yeah, I don't really think specific religious questions like these fit the term "general knowledge". I've never heard of it outside a classroom and this quiz. It's not a thing in most European or Asian countries. To the people saying this is general knowledge, can you list me some sikh holidays? No? That's what I thought.

Shrove comes from the verb to shrive meaning forgiveness. It is a time to seek forgiveness of your sin prior to the solemn fast of lent. The "fat" concept was merely using up the fat and other foods left in the pantry that you wouldn't be able to eat during lent. Take your pick which concept you find more important - but yes, you should include the word "shrove" somewhere in the question, in my view.

I had no idea these were the same person. I don't really pay attention to "either", but have heard of "both" many times.
So Miley Cyrus has an alter ego called Hannah Montana, who has an alter ego called Miley Stewart... What the...?
