Americans Confused By Brits Celebrating Pancake Day

Americans Confused By Brits Celebrating Pancake Day

As you're all probably fully aware by now, today is Shrove Tuesday, better known as Pancake Day - a day where it's all but mandatory to tuck into pancakes if you live in the UK.

But our friends across the pond have been left scratching their heads over the concept and have been asking a lot of questions on social media.

Writer Dana Schwartz asked her Twitter followers: "Can someone British please explain Pancake Day to me?"

And it quickly revealed that Dana wasn't the only American in the dark about the day. One person replied: "Wait, that's a real thing?

"I've only heard of it on an episode of Maid Marian & Her Merry Men. I thought it was just a gag made up for the show."

Another joked: "I get to eat pancakes today. Please don't rock the boat. Love, An American living in England."

While someone else chipped in: "Lol what's more confusing is that their pancakes are thin like a crepe and they eat it with lemon and sugar!"

Another demanded: "WTF IS PANCAKE DAY? IS IT A UK THING? WHY ARE PPL TALKING ABOUT PANCAKES ON A TUESDAY? DID I MISS SOMETHING?"

You certainly did.

Someone else gutted to be missing out wrote: "I didn't even know pancake day was a thing until a few hours ago. I'm envious of your badass carb-celebrating holiday."

Another woman shared that sentiment, posting: "Why don't we have pancake day in America? I feel cheated."

For those interested, Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day is the day before Ash Wednesday - and the beginning of Lent.

The eating of pancakes came into play as it was a way to to use up rich foods, such as eggs, milk and fat, as well as enjoying a last hurrah before the Lent fasting began.
