When is Pancake Day?

Sometime during February or March each year, people in Birmingham and elsewhere in the UK get out the frying pan for Pancake Day. And while some of the results end up on the ceiling or the floor, many pancakes are successfully created and eaten.

The date of Pancake Day varies because it depends on Easter, which also moves around the calendar from year to year. So when is Pancake Day in 2015?

For 2015, Pancake Day - also known as Shrove Tuesday - will be on Tuesday, February 17. The next day is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Lent consists of 40 days and nights of fasting and prayers before Easter.
