Lent is a Christian period of giving up something or possibly doing more of something. It can have a spiritual meaning – fasting and prayers and could be a way for people to reconnect with God. Normally, people give up sweet things, smoking or drinking for 40 days and nights. This starts on 21st February with Pancake Day – a day/night to gorge on all the fat you can before giving it up. I will be celebrating Pancake Day, however, I have not decided what I will be doing for Lent. I usually give something up, possibly this time I might give more time and energy to something. Whatever you decide to do, I hope that you enjoy your sweet or savoury pancakes, as you can’t just have one!
