Default Happy pancake day!



May your pancakes be graced with sugar and lemon, and your American friends confused as to why you would put sugar and lemon on your pancakes.

Here in the Netherlands, we don't have pancakes today, but the southern (historically more Catholic) part of the country takes Carnival very seriously. for example in Den Bosch:

Nearly 30 years ago, when we still lived in the UK, I worked for the roadside restaurant chain Little Chef for a time. Menu item 54 was sugar and lemon pancakes, and number 55 was mapleen syrup pancakes. There must have been some collective identity crisis about which side of the Atlantic we were on.
