Pancake Day!

On Tuesday, February 21st is Pancake day also known as Shrove Tuesday was the last chance for a spot of indulgence before 40 days of fasting (fasting is abstinence from food or drink or both for health, ritualistic, religious, or ethical purposes. The abstention may be complete or partial, lengthy, of short duration, or intermittent) and also an opportunity to use up food that couldn’t be eaten during Lent. Traditionally during Lent (Lent is the season of the church year that follows the Epiphany Season) Christians would give up rich, tasty foods such as butter, eggs, sugar and fat (some Christians continue to do so). Shrove Tuesday was the last chance to eat them, and what better way to do so than with a pancake.
