What is Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Day?

Shrove Tuesday was coined as “Pancake Day” as various countries began the tradition of serving pancakes which included these items.

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent starts on Ash Wednesday.

The name Shrove comes from the old middle English word ‘Shriven’ meaning to go to confession to say sorry for the wrong things you’ve done.

Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent, because they are a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent.

Shrove Tuesday Joke: “What did the young pancake say to the old burnt pancake?
I don’t like your flip side.”

A popular shroving rhyme went like this:

Knock, knock, the pan’s hot
And we are coming a-shroving
For a piece of pancake
Or a piece of bacon
Or a piece of truckle* cheese
Of your own making.
