    Is anyone else celebrating pancake day?

    Just wondered how other people are celebrating pancake day, or Shrove Tuesday? I know there are a lot of traditions around the world (Faschings, Mardi Gras) so just wondering who else celebrates by eating pancakes with lemon and sugar? Or what people's traditions are from other parts of the world. I'm based in the United Kingdom.

    I've never heard of a Pancake day in California, but it sounds like a nice tradition to have. I'll be sure to eat a batch of my favorite pancakes (chocolate chip) tomorrow. Is the pancake with lemon and sugar THE tradition? Or just your personal touch? Ill ask my father-in-law what he knows about pancake day too, he is from Liverpool. Cheers!

      I should have said there are two sorts of pancakes - the thin sort (like crepes) and the thicker sort we call scotch pancakes. It is the thin sort that we have on pancake day, and lemon and sugar is the tradition.

    I am in the UK today and so in my house we  will be doing the same as yourself, mixing, flipping and then eating our hot, tasty pancakes with syrup. Happy pancake day smile

    I will be making crepes this evening for my daughters served with lemon and sugar.  I grew up with this and it's a nice way of reminding myself about the beginning of lent and the meaning behind the fasting to follow.  We are not church goers, having a broader based spirituality, but I do follow some of the dates and pass on the traditions with a sprinkling of here's why with sugar!
