Fastelavn 2/25

fastelavnWe celebrate the Danish tradition of Fastelavn (carnival) Saturday, February 25th,
from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the House of Denmark Cottage and on the Lawn.

We are looking forward to seeing the children in their costumes – and adults, too, if they feel like it. The children will be invited to beat a barrel with a bat (‘slå katten af tønden’) to make the goodies inside fall out. There will be a chance for everybody to make ‘fastelavnsris’ (a traditional craft for the season), and to share ‘fastelavnsboller’ (lenten buns). fastelavensris-2

Please bring your own twigs for the ‘fastelavnsris’!

Participation is free to members of the House of Denmark. Guests (children as well as adults) may join the fun for $5.00 per person.
