DESCRIPTION:

Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day, Fat Tuesday) was initially a day of repentance and reflection (1 Corinthians 9:27), marking the end of Epiphany and the upcoming season of Lent. It is part of the Carnaval celebration and the final day of debauchery, festivities, and merry-making before 40 days of sacrifice and fasting begin.

Up through the Middle Ages, it was prohibited for Christians to eat meats, fats, eggs, milk, and fish during the season of Lent. Families purged the larder so nothing would spoil. In some countries, this day is called Pancake Day, and Christians eat pancakes to mark the day. Shrove is the past tense of the verb "shrive," which means "to present oneself for confession, penance, and absolution."

Due to these customs, Shrove Tuesday also became known as Fat Tuesday.
