Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Have you ever heard of National Pancake day? It is celebrated the Tuesday before Lent. The event dates back several centuries to when the English prepared to fast during Lent, which begins
Wednesday. Strict rules banned the consumption of dairy products during Lent, so people made pancakes to use up their supplies of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy items. That day became known as Pancake Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday.
