In denmark, it was ‘fastelavn’ last weekend …
And, what is fastelavn?
Fastelavn is like ‘ Halloween’ (and yes, we are having halloween too in october). We are just dressed funny & cute instead of creepy. The children are going door to door – singing and getting candy (Again.. Just like halloween) & then we hang up an barrel, that we hit on with a bat (Just like a pinata).
There are candy in the barrel, that falls out, when the barrel breaks. And the one that knocks out the bottom of the barrel, get to call himself a cat-king. he or she gets a golden paper crown! (Yeah, I know it sounds weird).
People say, that in the ols days, there was a real cat inside the barrel (instead of candy!) How horrible is that? I don’t know if it is true – I really don’t hope so.
Well .. Enough with the history lessons 😉
At fastelavn, we eat these buns!
So now you can make your own danish ‘fastelavns’ buns 😉
I filled the buns with both remonce and raspberry jam.
Finally friday! Yes – Wuhuu.. The weekend is really close by, and I am so looking forward to it ♥
And .. well .. It is also time to put on your finest clothes. The clothes that are hanging crying in the closet, missing you 😉
Celebrate dressup friday with me. Make some magic and go to work a bit prettier than usual – Greet the weekend. Read More
