I make pancakes all the time!

I add fresh fruit and plain mediteranean yoghurt on top (the fluffy kind), covered in real maple syrup. With a big cup of good strong coffee.

Mornings in my house are special. ;\)

Yuuuuumy.

That sounds yummy!

BUT, did you have pancakes TODAY?

You can have pancakes any day, but there's only one day that's P-P-P-P-P-P-P-P-Pancake Day!

Being an adult is kinda awesome.

Not wanting to be part of the herd, I cannot have pancakes today.
To further my distance from the herd, I ask that everyone tell me when they are not eating pancakes. I will eat my pancakes on a day no one else is eating pancakes...because no one controls me.

Edit Reason: Had to ask if anyone here is drinking coffee. They are. Darn...I really want coffee.

Well, since the point is that no one is supposed to have pancakes for 40 days AFTER Pancake Day ...

... you could go ahead and eat pancakes EVERY DAY for the next 40 days.

But, you see, I am even more radical than you in my non-conformism.

For I can eat pancakes every day for the next 40 days, AND today.

Maybe we should have a contest.

I'll show you...I will eat NO pancakes, demonstrating my uniqueness from you. I win!
Wait...no pancakes with whipped cream and berries? No chocolate chip pancakes?
Scoot over...pass the syrup...

I had some good old fashioned pancakes with my grandmother.

Nice and thin with butter, sugar and lemon.

I wouldn't have bothered myself, but as I was having dinner with her, she insisted.

Ah, Grandmothers.

Pancakes are delicious !
They deserve a holiday!
Unless you don't like them , don't deny yourself their deliciousness on account of non- conformity. Today or anyday .
For those eating pancakes For dinner I toast my coffee cup . In celebration of there deliciousness.

Fitting that Pancake Day is on Fat Tuesday.

Wait, Super Fat Tuesday.

Oh well, I shall have to take a rain check until I remember to pick up buttermilk. ;\)

Pancake celebrations were forbidden in Britain for Health and Safety reasons.

Of course it's amusing to see a xtian festival banned, but what will be banned next?

It's no coincidence! "Pancake Day" is the traditional day for finishing off the last of your sugar and butter (by making pancakes) before the Lent fast begins. The French would do the same with their lard - hence "Mardi Gras".

I had pancakes, although (to my shame) they were the ready made kind you heat up in the microwave. Also due to lack of weightwatchers points for the day they were plain (no sugar or chocolate syrup as the Lord intended they should be). Still, nice though.

I am out of the loop, as far as Christian holidays are concerned.
When I first read this thread, yesterday, I assumed it was some sort of joke, so I played along.
I mentioned it to my family and they had that, “I knew we forgot something look”. My son likes to make banana crepes on that day. We will do so tonight.

As a side note…today is Ash Wednesday. There are people walking around here with ash on their forehead. I am taking bets as to how long I can resist the temptation to lick my finger, say, “You have a little something on your forehead”, and wiping it off.
