What is Pancake Day and why do 1st Cranwell Brownies want to celebrate it every year?

Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is the last day before Lent.  Lent is a time when Christians give things up, so Shrove Tuesday is theri last chance to indulge themselves and to use up the foods which are not allowed during Lent.  Pancakes are often eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which were forbidden during Lent.

Brownies love an opportunity to cook, so what else could we do to celebrate Pancake Day than to make our own Pancakes - YUM YUM.  We use an easy mix which just needs water to be added to it - the girls give it a shake and then into the frying pan it goes.
