From New Orleans to Moscow, the celebration at the Spring Equinox, harbinger for Chrisians of the beginning of Lent, pancake parties shook the world. My theory is that pancakes include all of the things which start to run low in February and which Lent asks people to use less of: fat, sugar, preserves, suggary condiments and all of these Pancake celebrations are good ways to get in some good eating before the time of deprivation comes.
Have great days!
And here are my previous posts about this celebration:
