Shrove Tuesday

Home » Newsroom » Shrove Tuesday

Tuesday 17th March, 2015, is Shrove Tuesday and it is the last day before Lent. That means that it's a day to use up all your rich foods that you will give up during Lent.

It's also a day to be 'shriven': to ponder your previous sins and confess them before turning over a new leaf. Failing that you can always make pancakes.

Like many Christian feasts, Shrove Tuesday was thought to have its origins in a pagan Spring festival in which pancakes were made to symbolise the Sun. Eating the pancakes helped to wrestle Spring from the grip of Winter.

Which is all a long-hand way of saying if you want to make some more interesting and funky pancakes, click here.

Oh, and you might need a galvanised bucket with a drop of comforting Dettol and water in it!
