Although this blog is about petite fashion, I just wanted to wish UK readers a Happy Pancake Day.

For those of you who are reading this blog and wondering what the significance of Pancake Day in the UK, here’s a bit of information from www.about.com
“Pancake Day also known as Shrove Tuesday in Britain. Pancake day is the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. ‘Shrove’ – as in Shrove Tuesday – stems from old English word ‘shrive’, meaning ‘confess all sins’. It is called Pancake Day because it is the day traditionally for eating pancakes as pancake recipes were a way to use up any stocks of milk, butter and eggs which were forbidden during the abstinence of Lent.”
