Tuesday March 8 is Pancake Tuesday.
If you have never heard of pancake Tuesday, it is also known as Shrove Tuesday, or more commonly these days, Mardi Gras. It is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of the period of fasting and prayer known as Lent.
Typically, Pancake Tuesday is a time to indulge in the foods that contain fats, sugar, and eggs and are restricted during the fasting associated with Lent.
