History Of Shrove Tuesday
Shrove Tuesday is an ancient religious festival day dating back to the early Christian times. It is the day before Ash Wednesday, which itself is the commencement date of Lent.
Lent is a time of self-discipline and denial. Throughout the 40 days of Lent, people are called to fasting and prayer. However, the week preceding Lent has become a time of merrymaking, culminating on Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday.
The name Shrove Tuesday comes from the custom of ringing the “shriving bell” to summon the people to church to be “shriven” – that is, to confess their sins at the beginning of Lent.
At this time, certain foods are given up for the duration of Lent, such as eggs, milk, meat and rich buttery dishes. On Shrove Tuesday, families eat up all the rich foods left in their pantries. One way they use up the eggs, milk and fats in the house is to add flour to make special pancakes!
In England, the popularity of cooking pancakes on this day caused Shrove Tuesday to be called Pancake Day.
