|Pancakes are associated with the day
preceding Lent because they were a way to
use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and
sugar, before the fasting season of the 40
days of Lent. The liturgical fasting emphasized
eating plainer food and refraining from food
that would give pleasure: in many cultures,
this means no meat, dairy products, or eggs.
Shrove Tuesday (known in some countries as
Pancake Tuesday) is a day in February or
March preceding Ash Wednesday (the first
day of Lent), which is celebrated in some
countries by consuming pancakes. In others,
especially those (including Louisiana) where it
is called Mardi Gras becomes a carnival day,
and also the last day of "fat eating" or
"gorging" before the fasting period of Lent.
