Did you know …..
Pancake day is also known as Shrove Tuesday which is the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.
Shrove Tuesday is determined by Easter; its date changes every year.
The expression “Shrove Tuesday” comes from the word shrive, meaning “confess” and relates to popular practices associated with celebrations before the fasting and religious obligations associated with the penitential season of Lent. The term Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday.
