吃 Pancake

忏悔星期二,俗称Pancake day

中国人忙着过中国年,西方基督教国家,今年2月16日,正好是Shrove Tuesday,也叫忏悔星期二。

其实,英国上教堂的人很少,知道Shrove Tuesday的人可能不是太多,但是,英国人都会说,今天是Pancake Day。

这一天,家家户户都会做一做Pancake。

传统上,这一天是复活节前,人们大吃大喝的最后一天。Shrove Tuesday一过,就是Lent(四旬期)了。

四旬期这段日子,信徒要洁身忏悔。但是,一般人只会象征式的‘禁欲’,有的人少吃一点巧克力,少喝酒,少吃肉(为了减肥,倒不是为了耶稣)。

你如果有空,今天也不妨做一做Pancake 吧!
