Pancake day is celebrated in February, on the day before Lent begins. It was started in England as a way to use up eggs and butter before lent. One of the best known Pancake Day celebrations takes place each year in the town of Olney. The highlight of the celebration is a pancake race in which women flip pancakes in pans as they run.
Carnival is a festive season which occurs immediately before Lent. Carnival typically involves a public celebration or parade combining some elements of circus, mask and public street party. People often dress up or masquerade during the celebrations.
