Pancake Day

Tuesday 25th  February 2020, It always falls 47 days before Easter so the date moves but it will always be between February 3 and March 9.

Whats it all about ?

The name Shrove Tuesday comes from ‘shrive’, meaning absolution for sins by doing penance. Christians would go to Confession, where they admit their sins to a priest and ask for absolution. A bell would be rung to call them to Confession, which was called the ‘pancake bell’. It’s still rung today.

Pancake Day itself came much later as a way of using up rich foods, like eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting – Lent
