What do you need to confess?

Shrove Tuesday is exactly 47 days before Easter Sunday, The date can be 3 February or 9 March or anything between. Shrove Tuesday or Pancake day as we know it more, is the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.

Lent is a time of abstinence, of giving things up. So Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge yourself, and to use up the foods that aren’t allowed in Lent. Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which were forbidden during Lent.

The name Shrove comes from the old word “shrive” which means to confess. On Shrove Tuesday, in the Middle Ages, people used to confess their sins so that they were forgiven before the season of Lent began.

The French call this day Mardi gras meaning ‘fat Tuesday’. Quite apt for these times, where most of us neither fast nor do without….but still enjoy our bounty of pancakes.

So could your business cope with streamlining?  Do you have bad practices that you could stop? Now is the time to make sure that you are heading in the direction that you would like to.  Give up on practices that aren’t working for you and forge new stronger ones that will take your business forward.  Spring is on it’s way!

Enjoy your pancakes!
