Holiday confusion.

Please explain to me this pancake day thing. Where I come from pancakes are thick and flat and served as a breakfast item only. I figured since I didn't have pancakes for breakfast today, I missed out. (Thin ones are called "crepes" and as they are fancy French food you are allowed to eat them for any meal.) What is pancake day about (other than Shrove Tuesday, which is something I also don't do or get)? How do you "celebrate" it? Are these pancakes or crepes, and are you supposed to roll them and/or fill them?

Me, favorite pancakes are blueberry with real maple syrup. Yum!

Yeah, I felt myself becoming more English by the minute as I read about it. I'm going to add "bacon day" as a post-Easter holiday, probably for the Monday after Easter as that's a day off work here. Then I'll have ham day in October, as a part of Pork Month.
