Shrove Tuesday was recognised at Roslyn Lodge, North Tamborine as the beginning of the 40 days of Lent prior to Easter. The residents enjoyed an afternoon of pancake making …and eating which was great fun. A story was shared about a tradition from another country for Shrove Tuesday celebrations.
In the UK, pancake races form an important part of the Shrove Tuesday celebrations – an opportunity for large numbers of people, often in fancy dress, to race down streets tossing pancakes. The object of the race is to get to the finishing line first, carrying a frying pan with a cooked pancake in it and flipping the pancake as you run.
