National Pancake Day typically takes place on Shrove Tuesday, also known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, National Pancake Day dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent. Strict rules prohibited the eating... of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products...hence the name Pancake Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday. However, this year was slightly confusing because IHOP celebrated it a week early this year (Today) to help raise more than $5.35 million to support charities in the communities in which they operate.
