In an ordinary year, we would celebrate Fastelavn on Sunday, Feb. 14, as we have in many years past.
Fastelavn is a uniquely Scandinavian event preceding the start of Lent. In Denmark, Fastelavn is a bit like Halloween - Kids dress up and knock on doors, they sing a song that if they don’t get Fastelavnboller (a delicious custard fill bun) they will cause trouble, and they Beat the Barrel. Danes used to put a real black cat in a barrel and beat it until the cat ran away, to safeguard against bad luck.
In years past at Sunset Villa, volunteers built 2 or 3 barrels called Fastelavnstønde, we then filled with candy and a cat doll. Kids (of all ages) swung until the barrel was broken and candy spilled out. We would crown the King and Queen of Cats. Then we would warm up with hot chocolate and treats and decorate twigs (Fastelavnsris). Lastly, the kids would parade to show off their Fastelavnsris and costumes. Hope to do this again next year.
