National Pancake Day

February 23rd, 2009 · No Comments · Children's Charities, Children's Miracle Network

pancake dayMardi Gras is tomorrow (February 24). The name Mardi Gras, of course, is French and translates to “Fat Tuesday”. It’s the day before Ash Wednesday when Lent begins.

In Ireland and the UK, the day was known as “Pancake Day”. Why? It’s because rules prohibited the eating of dairy products and rich foods during Lent, so people would make pancakes to use up all the eggs, milk, butter, and sugar they had in the house.

If you stop into an IHOP on February 24th, 2009 from 7 AM to 10 PM, they’ll treat you to a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes in celebration of Pancake Day. During this day, they collect donations that go to children’s hospitals. They’ve been doing this since 2006 and has raised nearly two million dollars. Their goal for 2009 is to raise $1 million for the Children’s Miracle Network.

 Take someone to an IHOP and enjoy a centuries-old tradition while helping kids who need your help.
