Callop Monday

2012 February 20

Today, February 20th, is Callop Monday.

This is the day which precedes the more important (in my books) Shrove Tuesday.

The word callop means either a small piece or thin slices of bacon or meat. So on this day it is customary to eat all your leftover cold meats as well as eggs.

And for tomorrow, it is of course customary for the fat from the callops are to be used for the pancakes.
