Happy Shrove Tuesday

Musical content:

Pancake Tuesday is a holiday
If we don't get a holiday
We'll all run away!
Where will you run to?
We'll run down the lane.
I'll tell the teacher and
You'll get the cane!

Others?

You know last night?
You know the night before?
Three tom cats came knocking at our door.
One had a fiddle, one had a drum,
And one had a pancake stuck to his bum.

Is Fat Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday, "Pancake Day" throughout England or the wider UK? Never heard of it in the U.S. Around here in Michigan it's "PAZKI" day. They're sweetrolls filled with jelly or custard, and for some reason undecipherable to me are pronounced "punch'key". Had a raspberry filled one for breakfast, and I have a lemon filled one on hand for later in the day.

Among the Pennsylvania Dutch in the community where I grew up, their spin on the whole pancakes-on-Shrove-Tuesday concept was something called Fastnacht Day. (Fastnachts being a type of homemade, hole-less, yeast-raised donut, only eaten hot and with syrup like American pancakes.)

The idea's likely familiar: "get all the rich cooking ingredients out of the house before Lent!"

"for some reason undecipherable to me are pronounced "punch'key""

The word is Polish for doughnut. The letter A in Pazki has a tail on it (Ą) and is pronounced as a nasal 'on' as in the French word bon.

Pancake Tuesday always causes rows in our house about whether to have proper pancakes (crepes), or scotch pancakes/drop scones. As I always end up making them, I get my way with crepes :-)

Well I haven't been to all of the UK, but I thought we all had pancake day.
In a village near us (Tarvin, Cheshire) they ring the Pasncake bell on Shrove Tuesday, and in various villages there are Pancake races (frying pan in hand and toss the pancake at the end), never seen one though.

Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the ritual of shriving that Christians used to undergo in the past. In shriving, a person confesses their sins and receives absolution for them. When a person receives absolution for their sins, they are forgiven for them and released from the guilt and pain that they have caused them. In the Catholic or Orthodox context, the absolution is pronounced by a priest. This tradition is very old. Over 1000 years ago a monk wrote in the Anglo-Saxon Ecclesiastical Institutes:

In the week immediately before Lent everyone shall go to his confessor and confess his deeds and the confessor shall so shrive him.
So, there ya go!

"In Sweden it is called Fettisdagen (Fat Tuesday).

the middle part scooped out and replaced with ...
Marzipan with whipped cream. The top of the bun is
placed back on sprinkled with icing sugar."

And what do the Welsh and the Irish eat?

open mike - hot cross buns are reserved (I think) for Easter Sunday to commemmorate the resurrection; leastways that's when I have them - won't have them any other time despite my wife's remonstrations! Bloody Supermarkets making them available all year round. Some things should be kept seasonal.

All the Best

Steve.

Traditionally, Hot Cross Buns were reserved for Good Friday only. They (fairly obviously) commemorate the crucifixion.

Eggs on Easter Sunday.

Cool,

I knew it was somewhere around then - of course it makes sense! As do the eggs.

Does anyone know why peas should be eaten on Ash Wednesday tho' - this is something my Grandmother was very insistent upon, and I dunno why.

Fried peas "Carlins" were eaten in the North East on Carlin Sunday which was the Sunday before Palm Sunday (IE 2weeks before Easter)
Thre are many explanations for the origin of this now all but defunct tradition most of which refer either to siege or famine.
Carlins is also a local slang term for rabbit droppings which dried fried peas do indeed resemble.
