Pancake Tuesday

Hi, dear kids:
Today is Shrove  Tuesday or Pancake  Tuesday.Children  in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada love this date.They eat lots of pancakes today.They also organize pancake races.It's a religious holiday too, on the day before Ash Wednesday,the start of Lent.Pancake Tuesday is on a different day every year,but it's always forty days before Easter.American people celebrate Mardi Gras, it's similar to Carnival in Spain.
In A Corunna, it's a local holiday and  we use to go to Torre street dressed up in a way called 'choqueiros'.

        

Next Friday, we'll celebrate Pancake Day at our school  with  delicious pancakes, races and lots of fun.
