PaNcAkE dAy!!




The day before Lent (Cuaresma) starts is the day we call Pancake Day! Many countries celebrate this day in different ways. In Spain, for instance, we celebrate "Carnival", in New Orleans (USA) they call it "Mardi Grass".


Lent is a period of time that goes from Tuesday of Carnival to Easter Sunday and the first day of Lent is called "Ash Wednesday" (Miércoles de Ceniza). This day people promise to give up things they like and try to keep their promise for 40 days. 

During LENT people are supposed to give up meat, dairy and fatty foods. 








Pancake Day or Shrove Thursday is celebrated in Ireland, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada and Australia. People celebrate this day by making pancakes from eggs, milk and flour.
