Shrovetide (Pancake Tuesday)

Shrovetide is the English equivalent of what is known in the greater part of Southern Europe as the “Carnival”-“The English custom of eating pancakes was undoubtedly suggested by the need of using up the eggs and fat which were, originally at least, prohibited articles of diet during the forty days of Lent.”

A good opportunity to sit down with the kids and discuss plans for Lent.
