    What is a pancake?

    A pancake is a thin, flat cake, made of batter and fried in a pan.


    Shrove Tuesday is the last day before the period which Christians call Lent. This day is one of the moveable feasts in the church calendar and is directly related to the date on which Easter falls.

    Shrove Tuesday always falls 47 days before to Easter Sunday, so the date varies from year to year and falls between February 3 and March 9

    Where does the word Shrove come from?

    The name Shrove comes from the old word "shrive" which means to confess. On Shrove Tuesday, in the Middle Ages, people used to confess their sins so that they were forgiven before the season of Lent began

    Snort the batter mix and then gargle an egg straight after. Tastes better than a pancake.

    Pancake Day in the past
    The Pancake Bell

    More than a hundred years ago, Shrove Tuesday used to be a half-day holiday. A church bell, called the ‘Shriving Bell’, would have been rung signalling the start of the holiday and to call people to church to confess their sins. The church bell was rung at eleven o’clock in the morning, as a reminder to housewives to prepare their pancake batter and so the bell became known as the ‘Pancake Bell’.

    The bell is still rung today in villages across England, although Shrove Tuesday is now not considered a half-holiday.

    Cock Fighting

    Shrove Tuesday used to be a great day for cock-fighting in England. Cockfighting was introduced to Britain by the Romans.

    Superstition

    In the Midlands, the first pancake made was given to the chickens, to ensure their fertility during the year.

    It was believed that the first three pancakes cooked were sacred. They were each marked with a cross before being sprinkled with salt and then set aside to ward off evil

    I don't understand why people get excited by pancake day - if you like pancakes, you can make them on other days of the year you know.

    /completely ignores religious significance

    It's quite simple, it takes 364 days to forget how fucking time consuming and disastrous making them is.

    Ashbourne Shrovetide Football


    The game is played over two days and involves thousands of players. The goals are three miles apart and there are only a few rules. The ball is a hand-painted, cork-filled ball

    Too right. I'll have pancakes whenever I fucking well want them, not when I'm told to by 'the man'.

    FREEDOM!

    Yeah, but pancakes taste better on pancake day. The rest of the year they are a bit shit and you are always a bit dissapointed because you never have the *right* fillings in.
