Also known as Shrove Tuesday the date of the day changes every year but normally lands in February.

When is Pancake Day?

This year Pancake Day falls on March 1 making it later than normal and in time for the start of spring. 

Usually, Shrove Tuesday will be in mid-February but as Easter day is not until April 17 pancake day is also later. 

If you're curious about the word shrove it actually derives from the Anglo-Saxon language and means a person has confessed their sins.
