Today is Pancake Tuesday, otherwise known as Mardi-Gras, Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday. Why do many eat pancakes on Pancake Tuesday? Well as a feature in The Telegraph puts it, “Traditionally, pancakes were eaten on this day to use up rich, indulgent foods like eggs and milk before the 40-day fasting season of Lent began. But although it is enshrined in Christian tradition, it is believed that Pancake Day might originate in a pagan holiday, when eating warm, round pancakes – symbolising the sun – was a way of celebrating the arrival of spring.”
