Why do we have Pancake Day?

Pancake Day, is a celebration that is observed the day before Ash Wednesday in the Christian calendar.

Ash Wednesday marks the start of the period of Lent.

Lent is a 40 day period of abstinence that end with the Easter celebrations.

Making pancakes used up ingredients that could not otherwise be eaten during the 40 days of Lent and so the tradition to eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday began.

The pancake traditions have expanded and now pancake racing and pancake tossing are all part of the fun.
