although, i've never heard that the english were specialists at pancakes of any kind.
BT, your Mom made you, and you're a pretty special freind in my book, and so by the algebraic associative property, your Mom must be exceptional as well. Would I doubt your mom, not in this lifetime, or any other.

And if you look at my first post, you can plainly see that I love pancakes of all kinds, and with all kinds of toppings.

Buonasera,

I have a question; is there a holiday, the USA does not have ? Pancake Day is a 1st for me ... I shall google the information ...

None the less, it has been years and years, since I had Pancakes with Fresh Wild Rasberries or Blueberries or Crepès as a matter of fact ...

Good idea ...

Cool ...

Have nice evening,
Ciao. Margaux Cintrano.

Buonasera,

Found this fascinating website on USA food holidays ...

States Symbols USA Org. website mentions January 28th as being Blueberry Pancake Day ...

In July, the 4th is BBQ day, the 6th Fried Chicken and the 7th is Strawberry Sundaes ...

Amazing ...

It is actually humorous, as Greece, Italia and Spain celebrate Patron Saints, and The USA, foods ...

When is Pancake Day actually ?

Interesting Post.
Thanks.
Ciao, Margi.

A marketing ploy. National Pancake Day was created by IHOP (The International House of Pancakes) a US based breakfast themed restaurant. It raises awareness of where you can go have pancakes.

Nevertheless some people look past the marketing part of it and just use it as an excuse to have pancakes (or whatever product day it is).

I believe Shrove Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent.

Easter Sunday is determined by:

The first full moon after the 21st of March and the next Sunday is Easter. Lent is 40 days prior to Easter.

So if the first full moon falls on the 22nd of March, Easter Sunday will fall in March.

If the first of March is on a Sunday, and the full moon falls on the 22nd, which would be a Sunday, then the earliest Easter Sunday can fall is the 29th of March.
