No pancakes in my immediate future, but in the U.S., today is Mardi Gras (for the same basic reasons as your pancake day). Traditionally, I try to eat some Cajun food for lunch or dinner, but that's going to be logistically difficult today.

In any case, I am wearing my Mardi Gras beads.

Ahhh, I have of course heard of Mardi Gras, but was unaware of what exactly it was celebrating!

RE: Pancake day
I think Shrove Tuesday and Mardi Gras (French for "Fat Tuesday") and the Brazilian Carnaval are all just different versions of the same thing -- last chance to party before the 40 days of Lent. Of course, none of that really matters for atheists. It's just another excuse to party, but no real reason why I can't continue to do that tomorrow, or any day.
