Shrove Tuesday is a Christian festival to mark the start of Lent. Lent is a period of about six weeks when Christians are meant to practise abstinence – by giving up luxuries or uneccessary things. Lent ends on Maundy Thursday, the day before Good Friday. Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday is associated with pancakes being eaten. This was the last chance to eat rich foods before Lent, and an opportunity to use up all of the luxury foods (such as fat, butter and eggs – which British pancakes are made of) which might go off during Lent.
We all enjoyed tasting the pancakes and tried different toppings - honey, jam, sugar and lemon. Some of us tried each thing on its own. Some of us tasted them all together! We all loved the pancakes!!!!!
