February 24th – Pancake Day!
- Shrove Tuesday, more commonly called Pancake Day, Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, is celebrated every year to mark the first day of Lent
- Because Lent is traditionally a time when people had a sparser diet and gave up lots of ‘luxury’ things such as eggs, flour, butter and milk, Shrove Tuesday was the day to use them all up by making pancakes.
- The record for the largest pancake in the world is held by the Co-operative Union in Manchester. Their pancake weighed around 3 tonnes and measured a whopping 49 feet and 3 inches long!
- Olney in Buckinghamshire has a pancake race every year, and have done since 1445. It’s thought to have been the first pancake race in the world.
- In France, it is tradition to hold a coin in one hand, toss the pancake with the other and make a wish.
