Return to the Lent calendar.

Lenten Fast Fact

The Tuesday before Ash Wednesday is called Shrove Tuesday, referring to the word “shrive” which means “to confess.”

In earlier times rich foods made from eggs, butter, or sugar were banned during Lent — dietary rules were much harsher than the simple meatless Fridays of today. For hundreds of years, the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada have celebrated this “Pancake Tuesday” with rich and often sugary pancakes.
