Pancake DayPancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, in 2016 will be celebrated across London on Tuesday 9 February.

 
Pancake Day is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent – the 40 days leading up to Easter – is traditionally a time of fasting.

 
Pancake Day became a great way to use the foods that were given up for Lent: milk, butter, and eggs. Pancakes have featured in recipe books as far back as 1439!

 
Pancake Races in London
As well as eating pancakes, there’s a long tradition of pancake races in London. Participants have to toss pancakes in a frying pan while completing the course. The races often raise money for charity.

 
If you don’t fancy racing yourself, you can always cheer on the runners!
