Shrove Tuesday

Some of my pre-Orthodox family traditions still persist. Shrove Tuesday is one of them :-)

Although I started praying the prayer of St Ephrem and the Great Canon of St Andrew of Crete yesterday, today was a scheduled interruption.

Despite the Fast, we had pancakes for breakfast and for tea, and I salved my conscience in that a thousand years ago, my Orthodox ancestors in Britain were doing exactly the same thing in preparation for western Great Lent starting on Ash Wednesday.............

I hope to get the next Roundup done in the next day or so.
