    "Shrove is the past tense of shrive, which means to gain absolution of sins by confession and repentance. Shrove Tuesday is also known as Pancake Tuesday in some western European countries. The pancake aspect is not as widely observed in the United States as it is in England."

    I had never heard of Shrove Tuesday so I Googled it. I guess I'm stuck with my sins. ;):D
