In England, Shrove Tuesday is the day for pancakes. That is why the popular name for Shrove Tuesday is Pancake Day. The most popular traditions are tug-of-war and pancake race. Only women can take part in the pancake race, and they must wear an apron and a coif. During the race they must be tossed the pancake three times.
Today the only custom in Britain is pancake eating. At home families have pancakes for dinner or supper.
