Forget Valentine’s Day – Here’s Some Other Things To Do This February

The January blues have been and gone and the Valentine’s Day preparations begin. But for those who aren’t as sweet on the Valentines celebrations, we’ve got a list of ways to celebrate the other festivities that February brings. So, wrap up warm, get out there and seize the day!

Pancake Day

Need we say more? What’s more fun (and delicious) than pancakes? Make the mixture, pour into the pan, flip it, top them off in your favourite way and consume!

It falls on the 13th of February and is used to symbolise the last day of lent, traditionally a time of abstinence and the perfect opportunity to use up all your eggs, milk, sugar and flour.

There are several ways to celebrate pancake day, whether it’s dropping your pancakes on your kitchen floor or participating in a pancake race! Here’s just a few ways you can celebrate:
