Terminology
 The word shrove is the past tense of the
English verb shrive, which means to
obtain absolution for one's sins by way
of Confession and doing penance.
 Thus Shrove Tuesday gets its name from
the custom for Christians to be "shriven"
before the start of Lent. Shrove Tuesday
is the last day of "shrovetide", somewhat
analogous to the Carnival tradition that
developed separately in countries of Latin
Europe.
When is Shrove Tuesday
(Pancake Day)?
 In the UK, it is called Pancake Tuesday.
 Shrove Tuesday is celebrated the day
before Ash Wednesday. It is the final day
before Lent starts.
 Shrove Tuesday always falls 47 days
before Easter Sunday. Because of this, its
date changes annually but always falls
between 3 February and 9 March.
 This year Pancake Tuesday is Tuesday 4th
March.
What is Pancake Day?
 Pancake Day, or
Shrove Tuesday, is
the last day before
the period which
Christians call Lent.
It is traditional on
this day to eat
pancakes.
Why are Pancakes eaten on
Shrove Tuesday?
 Lent is a time when Christians give things up.
Pancake day is the last chance before Easter to
use up the fatty foods that can’t be eaten in Lent.
Therefore, we eat pancakes because they contain
fat, butter and eggs.
Crucial points!
 Pancakes are believed to
be of good luck in many
areas of the world. This
is because they contain
herbs and food items
associated with the
prosperity and longevity.
 Made from batter and
fried in fat the ingredient
symbolize four crucial
points: Eggs-creation
Flour-the staff of life
Salt-wholesomeness
Milk-purity.
