Why Celebrate Pancake Day?

An old English tradition


Where does Pancake Day come from?

Pancake Day originates from an ancient English Christian tradition where households got rid of all their “luxury foods” in preparation for Lent. Three luxury foods were milk, eggs, and white flour, which the people used up by making something similar to what we know today as pancakes.

In addition to making pancakes, we will have a wonderful time of fellowship with fun quizzes and a pancake race with prizes for the winning team.
