Pancake Day - Shrove Tuesday

February 16, 2021

Pancake day or Shrove Tuesday is usually the Tuesday before the beginning of Lent (Ash Wednesday). Lent is a 40 day period of abstinence for Christians, when they reflect on their religion and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.It lasts until Easter, when his resurrection is celebrated.

It is a tradition practiced over many generations and on this Tuesday, many Christians are believed to have indulged in binge-eating in readiness for the fasting period. This also involved using up food ingredients at home like the flour, milk and eggs.
