I want to do an event based around fat tuesday and some of the traditions that I have found as part of it.  Like the pancake flipping race that is held every year in England and in a city in the US, still today.  Are there any recipes and fun traditions that you guys know of?  I am thinking about doing this event next year, and I want to gather information for it.

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, and the beginning of Lent. I will be observing the medieval Lenten diet, which is basically vegan (though honey is allowed). I am using the diet from @ c.780-800 (my time period), which is no animal product, one meal a day (with a 'collation' in the evening), and fasting on Friday. Sunday is a 'feast day', which means more than one meal, and bigger meals. Yay. :-/ I don't know how far I'll get on the one meal and fasting part. We'll see.

Anybody with me? I can dig up later stuff if you're interested.

Oh- and whining about Lent is a very period tradition, and I plan to do it. :-P
