Oh fuck, yeah, today's pancake day! Today's the day to sell your Jif shares if you have them!

I can totally imagine someone saying ‘i’ll have one ticket to London St Pancras please’ and the person on the counter saying ‘no. say it properly’ or ‘i’m sorry no trains are going there today’

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

The one next to it looks like it says Sandwich. Someone is totally having a laugh. That’s not a real place.

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

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"](https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=today%205-y&geo=AU&q=pancake%20day,shrove%20tuesday) [UK "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday"](https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=today%205-y&geo=GB&q=pancake%20day,shrove%20tuesday) [US "pancake day" vs "shrove Tuesday"](https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=today%205-y&geo=US&q=pancake%20day,shrove%20tuesday) - very popular to use "Pancake Day" in the US. So I guess the British prefer the American word for it?

I miss the UK.

I'm just amazed it's only two minutes late.

I've always called St Pancras St Pancakes... (because I had trouble pronouncing it right when I was younger so it stuck) I have a bunch of nicknames for places I can't be bothered to pronounce right. :)

Bet the station had to be syruptitious when putting this one up. ^s^o^r^r^y

You can then get the tube to Puddington

Ebbsfleet international!

Good luck to any tourists trying to figure out which train they need to catch!
13 Feb 2018 19:49 - +11
This is about as savage as it gets in the UK. Pure carnage

My best friend calls it St Pancreas and I can't bring myself to correct her.
13 Feb 2018 18:10 - +8
2 coaches, that train is going to be packed

London Saint Pancake is a great name for a band.

Pancake day seems awfully early this year. It's really crêped up on me.
13 Feb 2018 18:37 - +6
Sure beats eating Pancras
13 Feb 2018 21:35 - +3
I can't wait to go to my local Tesco and find no pancake mix in a bottle and I have to make my own like I'm some kind of savage.
13 Feb 2018 18:42 - +3
I'm pretty sure they mean [Saint Alphonzo's Pancake Breakfast](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzfzsKENCbU)

Literally at Ashford Intl now and my train is also headed to St Pancake. Expectations are high today.
13 Feb 2018 16:10 - +2
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?!
13 Feb 2018 22:11 - +2
This is so cute omg I didn't even see this at London Bridge today D::
13 Feb 2018 22:08 - +2
They called it ‘St. Pancake’ on the announcement too!
13 Feb 2018 20:17 - +2
Pancake for you! Pankcale for you! AND a pancake fo you! Pancakes for everyone!
13 Feb 2018 22:21 - +1
Not as bitter as St. Pancreas.

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.

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.

Not a dream if you have rode hs1 in peak time!

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