Tuesday 9th February is Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as Pancake Day.
This is a day when Christians traditionally use up richer, fatty foods before the fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday and continues until Easter Day. Christians often 'give something up' for Lent - for example, chocolate. What could you give up this year for Lent?
