Pancake Day, otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Tuesday, is the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It marks the day of a moveable feast and is observed by many Christian denominations, including the Anglican, Roman Catholic, Methodist and Lutheran churches.Traditionally, it's a day of self-examination to consider which wrongs they should "repent" during the season of Lent. The term Shrove Tuesday comes from the word shrive, meaning to "confess".
Mardi Gras, meaning Fat Tuesday in French, refers to the practice of eating richer, fattier foods before the ritual fasting of Lent. Eating pancakes, which is customary in the UK, devolved from using eggs and butter in the batter - as they were ingredients forbidden during the fast.
How is it celebrated around the world?
In Brazil, as well as Portuguese, Spanish and Italian-speaking countries, it is celebrated as Carnival - which derives from the words carne levare. Meaning to "take away meat". It is often celebrated with colourful a procession, music and fancy dress. The most famous event is the Brazilian Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. Italy, Venetians celebrate with a masquerade.
In Poland, the day is sometimes called Paczki Day, which translates as Doughnut Day, which falls on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday. Paczki-eating contests take place, alongside music and the consumption of other Polish foods. Large communities in Chicago, Buffalo and Detroit occasionally celebrate Paczki Day instead of Pancake Day. It is also called tłusty czwartek, or Fat Thursday.
Pancake races also take place, in which people must toss and flip their pancakes into the air before crossing the finish line. Points are awarded for time and the height of flips. It is suggested that the tradition came from people rushing to church to confess their sins before the noon cut-off time, after cooking the pancakes.

Best pancake fillings?
Lemon and sugar is the simplest - and arguably the tastiest - pancake filling. However, chocolate spread with sliced banana is also popular in the UK. Jam is an easy filling, as is Canadian maple syrup.
Pancakes, which are like French crepes rather than smaller, thicker American-style pancakes, can also be enjoyed as a savoury dish. Cheese and tomato, as well as mushroom, are popular. Vegetable pancakes can be enjoyed as a dinner, or egg and bacon pancakes can be eaten for breakfast.

Espagne : le nombre de chômeurs est reparti légèrement à la hausse en janvier

Le nombre de chômeurs en Espagne est reparti à la hausse en janvier pour monter à 4,52 millions (+ 1,75 %), a annoncé, mardi 3 février, le ministère espagnol de l’emploi. Un chiffre qui confirme à la fois la légère remontée de l’économie ibérique et la persistance d’un chômage de longue durée qui pourrait nuire aux espoirs de croissance ...Deux lectures sont en effet possibles....

Une 26e édition aux couleurs de l'Espagne

C'est choisi, le 26e carnaval sera aux couleurs de l'Espagne. Alain Riu et toute son équipe en ont décidé ainsi car les 10, 11 et 12 avril, Fleurance accueillera une forte délégation d'Esplus (Aragon) pour cette édition qui se veut ouverte à l'Europe.

La reprise de l'activité bénéficie aux banques espagnoles

Les hausses des bénéfices sont en partie dues à un changement comptable qui avait conduit les banques à reformuler à la baisse leurs comptes de 2013. Mais, plus fondamentalement, ces résultats sont portés par la reprise de l'activité bancaire, qui bénéficie du dynamisme de la croissance de l'économie. Le PIB espagnol a augmenté de 1,4 % l'an dernier....
Malgré cette reprise globale de l'activité des banques espagnoles, l'encours de crédits reste négatif. D'après la Banque d'Espagne, l'encours de prêts aux entreprises a baissé tant pour les entreprises (- 3,4 %) que pour les ménages (- 3,9 %).
