Pancake Day is celebrated all over the world to mark the beginning of the Lent/fasting season. It is the day before Ash Wednesday. Households make use of all their sweet ingredients which they will abstain from during the fasting period.
I made my pancakes on saturday - I'm lazy like that (yes I know) and my camera was wheezing at will so I did not take any pictures.
