Subject: RE: Folklore: Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Pancake Day
Just got back from Germany (Walldurn) having spent 5 days at Carnival with German Straw Bears, brilliant. It all ends on Shrove Tuesday.
There was Shrove Tuesday football in my home town of Chester-le Street, Co Durham, but it was banned.
Perhaps I should have revived that event and not got distracted with Straw Bears?
