IHOP AND CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS
WHAT IS NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY? IHOP’s National Pancake Day is typically celebrated each year during the month of February. It traditionally falls on or around Mardi Gras (also known as Shrove Tuesday), and is a tribute to the centuries old English tradition in which all dairy products were used to make pancakes in preparation for Lent.IHOPs throughout the country have long supported their local communities, and National Pancake Day is a wonderful opportunity for the IHOP system to come together in support of those communities and to say thank you to the guests who support IHOP year round.
