What is Pancake Day and why do we celebrate it?
Pancake day is a fun and festive holiday that is celebrated in many countries around the world. Typically, it falls on Shrove Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent.
It all began when Pope St. Gregory II banned Christians from eating any kind of animal flesh or byproducts during Lent in the year 600. So, Christians prepared pancakes to use up their eggs, milk, and butter before the start of Lent.
