What is Pancake Day?
Pancake Day is a special day celebrated in many countries around the world. It’s usually celebrated on or around Shrove Tuesday, which is the day before Ash Wednesday. Pancakes are a traditional food eaten on this day, hence the name Pancake Day.
In some countries, such as England and Ireland, Pancake Day is also known as Shrove Tuesday. This is because it was the last day to eat rich foods such as eggs and butter before the start of Lent.
Lent is a 40-day period of fasting and prayer that begins on Ash Wednesday. During Lent, many Christians give up certain things like sweets or alcohol.
So why not start the Lenten season by making some delicious pancakes with your kids? It’s a great way to teach them about this important Christian holiday while also having some fun! And with our free printable placemat, it’s easy and convenient. Simply download and print the placemat, and you’re all set!
