Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is a traditional Christian celebration observed in many countries and dates back to the 16th century. It's the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent, a 40-day period where people give up a specific type of treat or something they have regularly to recognise the period of time Jesus fasted in the desert. The custom of eating pancakes on this day originated as a way to use up rich ingredients such as eggs, sugar, and butter, which were traditionally avoided during Lent. 

Today, Pancake Day is celebrated in different ways all around the globe, with many people enjoying sweet or savoury pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Some communities also organise pancake races, where people run while flipping a pancake in a pan, or hold pancake-eating contests. Pancake Day is a fun way to mark the start of Lent and is enjoyed by people of all ages and cultures. So enjoy these one liner Pancake Day jokes here!
