No problem, pancake tuesday(shrove tuesday for the christians among us) is the day when you eat pancakes, its suppoded to be a religous thing, left begins the next day and it used to be tradition to get rid of all rich foods like eggs and whatever else goes into pancakes! dont think people are big into the lent thing any more but the pancake thing will hang around for ever!

Hey all, Its called Shrove Tuesday here is some info,

Though for most of us its just an excuse to make pancakes lol, Every where now is selling lemon and pancake mix,


Shrove Tuesday is the term used in the United Kingdom,[1] Ireland,[2] and Australia[3] to refer to the day after Shrove Monday (or the more old fashioned Collop Monday) and before Ash Wednesday (the liturgical season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday). In these countries, particularly Ireland, and amongst Anglicans, Lutherans and possibly other Protestant denominations in Canada including Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, this day is also known as Pancake Day or Pancake Tuesday, because it is customary to eat pancakes on this day.[4][5][6] In other parts of the world—for example, in historically Catholic and French-speaking parts of the United States and elsewhere—this day is called Mardi Gras.
