Here is everything you need to know about Pancake Day.
The ingredients for pancakes can be seen to symbolise four points of significance at this time of year:
Eggs = Creation
Flour = The staff of life
Salt = Wholesomeness
Milk = Purity
Britons have celebrated Pancake Day known also as Shrove Tuesday for centuries.
The exact day changes every year, because is determined by depending on Easter.
But it is always the day preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), and always falls in February or March.
The date of Shrove Tuesday is intrinsically linked to Easter, a moveable feast which falls between March 22 and April 25. This year Easter Sunday falls on April 21.
The period in between Shrove Tuesday and Easter Sunday is known as Lent and officially begins on Ash Wednesday, ending on Holy Saturday.
The word shrove is a form of the English word shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus, Shrove Tuesday was named after the custom of Christians to be “shriven” before the start of Lent.
In the United Kingdom, Ireland and parts of the Commonwealth, Shrove Tuesday is also known as “Pancake Day”, as it became a traditional custom to eat pancakes as a meal. Elsewhere, the day has also been called “Mardi Gras”, meaning “Fat Tuesday”, after the type of celebratory meal that day.
Traditionally, pancakes were eaten on this day to use up rich, indulgent foods like eggs and milk before the fasting season of Lent began.
But although it is enshrined in Christian tradition, it is believed that Pancake Day might originate in a pagan holiday, when eating warm, round pancakes – symbolising the sun – was a way of celebrating the arrival of spring.
