Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day, precedes Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. The expression “Shrove Tuesday” comes from the word “shrive” meaning “confess”. Pancake Day celebrates the start of the Christian celebration of Lent where Christians give up something for 40 days to empathize with Jesus Christ when he was sent into the wilderness for 40 days and nights and tempted by the Devil. This is often reflected on this day by eating up richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season.
