Shrove comes from the verb to shrive, or hear confessions. Shrove Monday is part of the celebrations of Shrovetide that come just before Ash Wednesday that is the first day of Lent season. The days of Shrovetide were meant to be days of preparations for the upcoming season of Lent, so people would prepare themselves by going to confession and doing away with eating any meat. From this also derives the term Carnival—carne levare or “taking away the flesh.
