Pancake Day: Why It's Quite Literally The Best Day Ever

Christmas is a long-forgotten memory and even Fireworks Night seems like a long way off. But it’s OK, for the greatest British holiday* (*not really a holiday) is finally upon us - Pancake Day.

And it’s no wonder we’re so excited about this peculiarly British tradition. Thoughout our childhood, we’ve been conditioned to adore pancakes, and the idea that you can only have them on this one very special of days makes it all the better.

Sure Americans might have their ‘Fat Tuesday’ and eat the fluffy, syrup-laden treats for breakfast most days, but nothing can beat our way of celebrating Shrove Tuesday.

And this is why we love it…
