Shrove Tuesday is always a favourite for us at Tarrington Lutheran School and our Student Leadership Team made pancakes for the entire school! We thank our Student Leadership Team, the Year 5 class and our parent volunteers who supported the cooking effort this morning.
Why Pancakes on Shrove Tuesday?
Pancake Day always takes place on the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of the Christian season of Lent in the run up to Easter. Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday was a day for using up food that could not be eaten during Lent, which was a time for fasting. Therefore, people made pancakes using leftover eggs and butter.
