Pancakes sure to taste ex­tra good

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

St Pius X School couldn’t wait to taste the pancakes they made in prepa­ra­tion for their school pic­nic on Pan­cake Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 17.

Pan­cake Tues­day

is

cele- brated in many coun­tries as the last day be­fore Lent – a six-week pe­riod of fast­ing and prayer be­fore Easter. It is also known as ‘‘ Fat Tues­day’’ or ‘‘ Mardi Gras’’ be­cause it refers to the prac­tice of eat­ing rich and fatty food be­fore fast­ing.

Mardis Gras car­ni­vals are held around the world, so St Pius X pupils also made masks to show their par­ents.
