Have you ever heard of Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday or Fat Tuesday?! It does sound a bit strange that there would be a day called Fat Tuesday or even Pancake Tuesday but really its not that strange after all!
What is pancake Tuesday?
Pancake Tuesday is were you gather your left overs and make pancakes and share together, because pancakes are very good for mixing up all the left overs. It is the day before Ash Wednesday/Lent and the reason for that is because during Lent we usually give up something or fast for 40 days and some people cut back on tasty foods and pancakes are very tasty and yummy so that is why we celebrate it just before Lent starts!
How do some other countries celebrate Pancake Tuesday?
There are quite a few countries that celebrate Pancake Tuesday, so I will only just be listing 2, Italy and South America.
In Italy, they call it ”carnival” and they have a carnival that starts around two weeks before Ash Wednesday and ends on Pancake Tuesday. In the carnival they were beautiful masks.
In South America, they call it “Mardi Gras” and Mardi Gras is traditionally time of colorful celebration before the start of Lent.
