Shrove Tuesday is the last day before the season of Lent, a time of preparashion before the coming of Easter in the Christian Church. 

It is also a time of reflectshion and fasting, where many Christians chuse to give up something, such as sweets, television or biting there nails, for 40 days.

Traditionally, the idea behind ‘Pancake Tuesday’ was to empty the cuboards of sugar, eggs and fats to avoid all temptations during Lent. These ingrediants weren’t thrown out, but instead used to make lots of yummy pancakes.
