28 Shrove Tuesday and Pancake Day
Pancake Day, also called Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras (which is French for "Fat Tuesday"), is
the last day of feasting before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It's called so due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the
day. This tradition comes from a time where any rich foods were eaten on the day before Lent, and fasting begins. The date
can vary from as early as February 3rd to as late as March 9th
