To some, Pancake Day / Shrove Tuesday is a time for introspection, confession and penance.
Pancake Day is also called Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras; a time for that one last carb-binge before the Lent fast.
I say; let us simply celebrate this day, as we should everyday, without the aforementioned self-punitive rituals; free of self-reproach, self-indulgence and self-deprivation / fasting.
Let us eat pancakes!
