Etymology of the Word Shrove
In modern English, the word 'Shrove' has no meaning outside of pancake or Shrove Tuesday. Academics can trace shrove to the past tense of the verb shrive, which itself means absolution. This derivation helps to cement the meaning of eating up luxury food before the penance of fasting during Lent.
If you bring to mind other old words such as Yuletide (Christmas) and Eastertide, then it will be no surprise that there are lesser known '-tides',Allhallowtide (Halloween), Whitsontide (Whitson) and Shrovetide. My point is that Shrove Tuesday is the last day of Shrovetide.
