Today's 12th February and it's Shorve Tuesday or also Pancake Day. It's the day before Ash Wednesday, when Lent starts. It's the day when pancakes are cooked and eaten here in Galicia and in England, too. In England, they also hold pancake races where you have to run and arrive first to the finishing line while flipping a pancake in a frying pan.
