Put on your Crown of Smiles (Day 9) Share your smiley face pancakes


  • Welcome to the 9th Day of Crown of Smiles – Your smiley cup of smilence moments

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog

Remember that each day you have to get into the habit of:-

  • Putting on your Crown of Smiles
  • Spend 5 minutes for your Smilence Moments each day
  • Put your box of Smilence in a prominent place or take it around you as a way to boost your Smilence level



Shrove Tuesday (known in some countries as Pancake Tuesday) is a day in February or March preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes

Today’s Task ( Day 9)  Share your smiley face pancakes with someone!

You can make your own pancakes or buy then, then decorate to make a smiley face and then share some with your friends and families as you enjoy your “smilence” moment eating the pancake.


7 Fun facts about pancake day!

  1. The largest pancake ever made measured 15 metres and weighed in at three tonnes – you’ll need a lot of sugar and lemon for that one.
  2.  The most flips anyone has ever done with a pancake is 349 flips in two minutes. That’s ‘flipping’ good!
  3.  Over a lifetime, an average person will eat 7,300 eggs.
  4.  We all have our preferences for pancake toppings but the weirdest pancake toppings have to be sour cream and caviar, ketchup and mustard, peanut butter and ice cream, coco pops and cream, cream cheese and strawberries.
  5.  The Guiness World Record for the most pancakes served in eight hours is 34,818.
  6.  Before baking soda was invented, cooks often used fresh snow as it contained ammonia, which helped the pancakes come out fluffy and soft.
  7.  It is customary in France to touch the handle of the frying pan and make a wish while the pancake is turned, holding a coin in one hand

Pancake Day #pancakeday

Why do we celebrate Pancake Day?

Traditionally, pancakes were eaten on this day to use up rich, indulgent foods like eggs and milk before the 40-day fasting season of Lent began. But although it is enshrined in Christian tradition, it is believed that Pancake Day might originate in a pagan holiday, when eating warm, round pancakes – symbolising the sun – was a way of celebrating the arrival of spring.
