Shrove Tuesday is known as Pancake Day in England and some other countries. It is the last Tuesday before Lent.
Shrovetide was also a period of dietary license, and foods forbidden in Lent were consumed in abundance. Eggs and milk were at one time forbidden in Lent and therefore any supplies had to be used up before Ash Wednesday. On Shrove Monday, in parts of England, meat and eggs were eaten, or gifts of pancakes, flour, eggs, or money to provide Shrove Tuesday fare were collected by children or adults. Mardi Gras is also known as Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday. It is the last day of feasting before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.
