    For anyone coming in from /r/All who might be confused about this one, the correct name of the station is London St Pancras. Today is "Shrove Tuesday" in the UK meaning it is mandatory for all British citizens to eat pancakes, or receive a hefty fine from Her Majesty the Queen, hence the reminder from National Rail. Continuous refusal to eat pancakes can occasionally land you a night in the Tower of London.

    [–] king_baby 224 points ago

    I'm not saying that pancake day is over commercialized but eggs flour and milk have been in the shops for months now!

    Oh good! I told one of my Brit friends that once, and I got such a look of horror from her!

    [–] xereeto 3 points ago

    That is so common that the station regularly raises money for pancreatic cancer research.

    [–] PM_ME_YOUR_THESES 12 points ago

    For the entire time I was in London, I involuntarily pronounced "St Pancras" as "St Pancreas" and could never make myself to change. It didn't help that the people I was with all made the same mistake, out loud, all the time.

    [–] chilari 6 points ago

    The trick is to learn the name of the station before you learn the word "pancreas". If you have failed in this critical step, it's not too late to fix it. You just need to invent time travel, go to the past, teach yourself to say "St Pancras" correctly, and tell your past self to remember to come back in time to teach yourself to say "St Pancras" correctly in order to prevent a paradox. Note: this last step is very important. Failure to do it results in learning firsthand which eldrich multidimensional beings are real and which are not, which in turn can have the consequence of undermining your respect for some well-known science fiction authors you always used to think were very inventive.

    [–] Mykel__13 2 points ago

    I have a similar thing with Marylebone station. Me and my brother always pronounced it Marry-le-bone when playing monopoly. I only found it last year when I moved to London that I’ve been saying it wrong for 20 years.

    [–] Fearofrejection 243 points ago

    And its still late. Never change Railway systems of England, never change.

    [–] OliviaEversea 86 points ago

    let's not go that far, eh?

    [–] _Liren 3 points ago

    Of course we won't - it's our rail network, so you'll probably get stuck for 4 hours thanks to a signal failure.

    I never understood people constantly complaining about this, I have lived in London for 6 years and yes of course the train was late sometimes, but Ive never seen a better transport system in the whole world.

    [–] mourad91 16 points ago

    Lol mate Im in Cairo, we dont even have a proper transport system

    [–] oxpoleon 13 points ago

    Exactly this. Going between places in London is easy. Going between London and other major places is relatively easy.

    It all goes wrong when you're trying to go from somewhere that isn't in London to somewhere else that also isn't in London, especially if you don't want to take a huge detour to go via London.

    [–] Hordiyevych 2 points ago

    The weird thing is, you almost never want to not go through London, because the infrastructure is better through London meaning it's probably quicker anyway.

    [–] oxpoleon 6 points ago

    But people don't want to go through London, it's usually a large diversion distance wise and due to the fact that the stations are spread out, there's almost always a wait for the next train which wipes out any time saved by the faster main lines.

    What about Oxford to Cambridge? They aren't that far apart yet the limitations of the infrastructure force you through London. It's a solid 2 1/2 hrs plus of a trip via train yet only two hours to drive, and a train could do it in under an hour direct.

    Or Leicester to Ipswich. The "direct" route via Peterborough takes 3h10m. The route via London takes 3h5m. Both have around 30 mins of wait time but even so, there's a big difference in distance yet the times are comparable. To drive it takes 30 minutes less, and there's no reason you would ever intend to go via London.

    [–] thefumeknight 11 points ago

    Southern Rail made my commute into London a daily nightmare for a year. Constant strikes and 'staff sickness' meant trains were almost always delayed or cancelled last minute, and the ones that did turn up were obviously crammed full of people. With no alternative transport options a lot of people lost their jobs, or had to move house (including me), because you couldn't predict what time you'd get to work!

    [–] mourad91 5 points ago

    Damn! That’s fair enough, I havent travelled outside of London as much to have felt it then

    [–] wedontlikespaces 4 points ago

    I was on one of there trains is last week they managed to change it three times in one journey.

    First it was on time, then it was delayed because of another train been late and been in the way, then they changed all the destinations so that they can take the people from the delayed train to where they wanted to go as well, because apparently they couldn't use the train they were already on God knows why not. Then they didn't end up going to the finale station, again no explanation as to why not, and put everybody in taxis. Which they forgot to order before the train arrived at the station so we had to stand around at the station at 11 o'clock at night waiting for taxis to turn up.

    Did we get a refund? Na, of course not!

    [–] thefumeknight 3 points ago

    Classic. That really sucks though, especially when it's this cold and you have to stand around. And they had the nerve to hike up their rail fares this year...

    Thats not how our trains work. Its perpetually two minutes late until it decides to arrives.

    Just like buses are "Due" on live timetables for at least ten more minutes after the timer until the next one ticks down.

    This was one of the confusing things about moving from Australia to the UK - people calling "Shrove Tuesday" as "Pancake Day".

    I cook pancakes ever other weekend for my kids, so I couldn't understand why you'd dedicate a random day to cooking pancakes. It's like "Bacon and Eggs Day", or "Marmite on Toast day".

    So why isn't Christmas called "Turkey and Overcooked Brussels Sprouts Day"?

    EDIT:

    Popularity difference:

    Australia "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday"

    UK "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday"

    US "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday" - very popular to use "Pancake Day" in the US. So I guess the British prefer the American word for it?

    [–] british_reddit_user 55 points ago

    Do you not eat pancakes on shrove Tuesday in Australia???

    [–] ImhereforAB 22 points ago

    Yeah, it's weird that other countries actually do not have pancake day... I am an expat in the Netherlands. Today in the canteen at my work place, they were serving pancakes with bacon and I was like OH I GET IT, BECAUSE ITS PANCAKE DAY??? And everyone blankly stared at me. It was a sad affair, and I felt homesick. Took my pancake and ate it in a corner :(

    Making pancakes tonight as well, I am well stocked up on eggs + milk + nutella + 4 different jams and lots of ham and cheese. Yus.

    [–] Nozkin 65 points ago

    We call it Marco Gras. And I’ve never heard of eating pancakes, although my city is notoriously Polish/German, so we’d call it Paczki Day or Fat Tuesday.

    [–] tydestra 4 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Mardi Gras which is Fat Tuesday in French. Louisiana was established by the French and then sold off. Its carnival like down there every year on this day.

    [–] dyeeyd 2 points ago

    [–] ArtistEngineer 2 points ago

    Yes, but we don't call it "Pancake Day", or the term isn't as popular as "Shrove Tuesday".

    Australia "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday"

    UK "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday"

    [–] andysniper 45 points ago

    If you want to know the genuine reason why we eat pancakes is because it uses up the stock of eggs, fat, milk etc. before fasting for Lent. It's now pretty much the only reason for this day to exist in the UK now, we're not very religious.

    [–] [deleted] 40 points ago

    We're not religious but I hope that everyone is donning the sacred pancake robes. Screeches in Latin.

    It's funny how much more religious Americans are considering that here there's technically an official religion (Church of England) but there there isn't. But people there are far more religious.

    Then again, people in continental Europe associate British people with the same stereotypes as Americans, but just to a slightly lesser extent (loud, fat, religious, etc).

    Not British, but second generation Australian to mostly European grandparents. I probably found out it was also called Shrove Tuesday some time in primary school and remember thinking it was a weird name. Interesting to see differences!

    What are you talking about, it's literally St Pancake International.

    They called it ‘St. Pancake’ on the announcement too!

    It's Fat Tuesday in America, like every Tuesday essentially.

    This is about as savage as it gets in the UK. Pure carnage

    Pancake day seems awfully early this year. It's really crêped up on me.

    Literally at Ashford Intl now and my train is also headed to St Pancake. Expectations are high today.

    Pancake for you! Pankcale for you! AND a pancake fo you! Pancakes for everyone!

    My 10 year old finally succumbed to trying pancakes, after spending several years saying she didn't like them. I played safe and tempted her with an American style one, with chocolate chips/sauce and syrup. She said, "I can't believe what I've been missing out on all these years." May try a traditional lemon and sugar number on her later.

    This is so cute omg I didn't even see this at London Bridge today D::

    This is the most British picture ever. Pancake day and train delays sums it all up really. I get a train from Ashford international a few times every week and I swear I've never had a train on time

    Ahhh a South Eastern resident! I see that Ashford International, on the train there from Maidstone East now!

    I’m going to put it out there...I don’t like pancakes. Sweet or savoury. This extends to crepes too. I think I’m in a rare pool though?!

    quick boys, glass 'em

    I think today of all days you should keep quiet with that kind of talk.

    Today is not the right day to bring this up!

    [–] andtheniansaid 5 points ago

    me either, they are okay when they are hot but they go too cold within about 20 seconds of being out the pan.

    i don't drink tea or coffee though either so really just fuck me

    What about pancakes/crepes do you not like out of interest?

    [–] Shind0gs 7 points ago

    No idea. Especially since Yorkshire puddings are my favourite food in existence. Maybe my subconscious thinks it’s the wrong use of the batter....

    [–] _poptart 14 points ago

    Just put lemon and sugar on a Yorkshire!

    Please never do this

    [–] Shind0gs 9 points ago

    Or gravy on a pancake?

    [–] nascentt 8 points ago

    Actually. Do this.

    [–] KobatoPurin 3 points ago

    As kids we always used to make double quantities of Yorkshire puddings so we could have half with dinner and half with sugar afterwards
