Shrove Tuesday

February 13

Shrove Tuesday, which is often referred to as ‘Pancake Tuesday’, is observed the day before Lent starts. Because Lent is a time of abstinence (of giving up things) Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge, and to use up the foods that aren’t allowed to be consumed during Lent. Traditionally, pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which were traditionally forbidden during the season of Lent.
