Celebrate Collop Monday

 Celebrate Collop Monday
 All Day Event

Rather overlooked now, Collop Monday was traditionally the day before Shrove Tuesday (aka, pancake day) and would have been part of the Shrovetide celebrations during the days before Lent.

The collops of which it is named from refers to meat — traditionally cured meats such as bacon — and would be eaten to use up the last of the cured meats that were not expected to be edible once Lent was over and eating meats was allowed again.

I think eating a bacon based meal the evening before pancake day is a tradition that should be restored.
