It’s Pancake or Shrove Tuesday next week – traditionally the final feasting day before the start of the six week Lenten period. Shrove comes from the word “shrive” meaning to absolve. It’s observed by many Christians who consider the wrongs they need to repent and seek absolution for.

Many cultures across the globe celebrate this day. In New Orleans the famous Mardi Gras, or literally Fat Tuesday, festival takes place and this is replicated in Portugal, Southern American, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Italy as well as many commonwealth countries.
