The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race takes place
on the day before Lent, the beginning of 40 days of fasting. Shrove Tuesday is
traditionally the day that catholic people feast before fasting, many people used
to give up eggs for Lent so in order to use up all the eggs people would make
pancakes, this is how pancake day came about.
