Subject: RE: Folklore: Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Pancake Day
I saw an article that mentioned there were soccer games in england and
some streets were closed to allow the games to be played .


Were?

Games are still current in Ashbourne in Derbyshire, Corfe in Dorset, Alnwick in Northumberland, and probably many others I can't think of OTTOMH. Shop windows will be boarded up and various bits of street furniture put into storage at this very instant ...
