Britain really gets the short end of the stick when it comes to celebrating Shrove Tuesday, The US and South America get an amazing festival of costumes, floats, beads and alcohol. What do we get? Pancakes. I like pancakes don’t get me wrong, but I would much prefer Mardi Gras to Pancake Day.
I seriously don’t know how the two can compare, but since my nearest carnival is going to be 3000 miles away, I guess I’m going to have to go through lent on pancakes alone. Maybe this year I’ll try chocolate ones.
