What is pancake day? 

Shrove Tuesday falls on the day before Ash Wednesday, otherwise known as Lent. 

Lent lasts for six weeks and is traditionally known as a time for fasting by Christian people, before Easter Sunday, as it replicates Jesus Christ’s journey into the desert for 40 days.

As a result, people use up all the main ingredients in their fridge, such as flour and eggs and milk, ahead of the fast.
