WHY PANCAKE DAY IS CELEBRATED.

Pancake Day is being celebrated today 28th of February 2017!!!

Pancake Day has been celebrated by Britons for a considerable length of time. Referred to likewise as Shrove Tuesday, its correct date, rather confusingly, changes each year, since it is determined by when Easter falls.
Be that as it may, it is always the day before Ash Wednesday and Ash Wednesday is tomorrow, 1st of March, 2017 (the first day of the Lenten season). Pancake Day typically falls in February or March. Today is indeed the day to fry up a storm of pancakes!!!

Generally, pancakes were eaten on this day to exhaust rich and indulgent ingredients like eggs and milk before the 40-day fasting period of Lent started. In any case, in spite of the fact that it is cherished by Christians, it is believed that Pancake Day may have started as an agnostic occasion, when eating warm, round pancakes- symbolizing the sun – was a method of celebrating the coming of spring.

And in addition of making and eating pancakes, the Brits love to hold pancake races, where individuals run while flipping their pancakes in a skillet. 

Legend has it that this competition was conceived in the fifteenth century when an especially muddled lady in Buckinghamshire hurried to a chapel to admit to her wrongdoings while in the middle of making pancakes. We trust she offered one to the minister when she was through with her confession.
