Happy Pancake Day
Mmm… did someone say pancakes?
Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is a special day celebrated in many countries around the world. It is celebrated in English-speaking countries like the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada.
Pancake Day is always on a Tuesday in February or March. It is the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. Lent is a period of 40 days before Easter when people often give up or stop eating things that are bad for them like chocolate or fast food. At the end of Lent is Easter.
Traditionally, during Lent, people didn´t eat rich foods like butter and eggs, so they made pancakes form these ingredients on Shrove Tuesday.
So we decided to celebrate this day in our school eating pancakes as dessert.
