Pancake Tuesday is also referred to as Shrove Tuesday . It derives its name from ‘shrive’, which means absolution for sins. In the US it is also called ‘Fat Tuesday’ indicating the practice of eating rich and fatty foods before the Lenten fasting. In French it is called Mardi Gras.
The actual tradition of mixing the ingredients for pancakes is thought to come from a pagan ritual. Some others say it is a Christian tradition – with each ingredient representing one of the four important aspects of the faith.
Eggs for creation.
Flour for sustenance of life.
Salt for wholesomeness.
Milk for purity
