Shrove Tuesday isn’t just an arbitrarily named themed day though, it’s origin is rooted in the Christian tradition of Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter during which people are encouraged to give up certain luxuries as penance.

Jordan McCullough, Activities Staff says “Every year, people living at the Home look forward to Shrove Tuesday with great excitement.  It is a day that has been celebrated throughout childhood years and holds fond family memories of making pancakes with loved ones.”
