What is Shrove Tuesday?

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent. It is a day on penitence, to clean the soul, and the last chance to feast before Lent begins. Pancakes became associated with Shrove Tuesday as they are a dish that can use up all the eggs, fats and milk, which were once counted among the items observant Christians wouldn’t eat during Lent. This religious observance also gave rise to the French term “Mardi Gras”, which means “Fat Tuesday”.
