Pancake Day is a recipe [...]; WINNERS.

Pancake Day is a recipe for fun TODAY is Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Day!

Shrove Tuesday is a Christian event, known as Carnival, or Mardis Gras in other parts of the world, and is traditionally a day of fun and feasting before Ash Wednesday, when fasting begins for the 40 days of Lent, leading to Easter.

The idea originally was that people gave up certain fatty and sweet foods, like eggs, milk, butter and sugar for Lent, so used them all up on Shrove Tuesday. Tossing pancakes is a tradition in the UK. Much easier is the tradition of eating them.
