Shrove Tuesday

Shrove   Tuesday    announces   the coming    of    Lent,    in    advance    of Ash   Wednesday ,   the   first   day   of Lent. It   is   a   day   of   penitence,   to   clean the    soul    and    a    last    chance    to celebrate    and    feast    before    the start of Lent. Historically,       Christians       would undergo    the    ritual    of    shriving, where   they   confessed   their   sins and    would    receive    forgiveness for      them.      Through      receiving forgiveness   for   sins,   people   are released   from   the   guilt   of   having caused them. It   is   believed   that   traditionally   a ‘shriving    bell’    was    rung    to    call people    to    confession;    today,    in some   places,   it   is   still   rung,   but   it is called the ‘pancake bell’. This   name   arose   from   the   story of        a        woman        of        Olney, Buckinghamshire,    who    in    1445 heard     the     shriving     bell     whilst making   pancakes   and   ran   to   the church,    still    in    her    apron    and clutching her frying pan.
