Shrove Tuesday is part of the Christian liturgical calendar.
It is also known as Pancake Day.
Lent is a period of prayer and fasting in the lead up to the major liturgical days
While in many modern societies, fasting and abstinence
does not take on the same significance as once it might have done,
traditionally this was a period which also included abstinence from fat.
So Pancake Day was significant as the last day before the forty days of fasting.
It is nice to see Wendouree Neighbourhood Centre
keeping the tradition going.
And as well as keeping up the spirit of the day,
it is sure to be a very pleasant social occasion.
