Happy Fastelavn!!!


Fastelavn is an old tradition, we in Denmark celebrate by dressing up as whatever one feel like and beating up a barrel hanging from the roof. Back in the days they put a black cat down the barrel, to symbolize the evil they wanted to chase away. That part of the tradition is kind of illegal now a days - so instead we just fill the barrel with candy, and take turns hitting it with a bat. The person who makes the bottom fall out of the barrel, becomes the "Cat-Queen" - And the person who makes the last part of the barrel fall to the ground, becomes the "Cat-King".

Hej Sten :)

Jeg kom lige forbi din blog, ifm. Lovefilm give-awayen på min blog. Det blev desværre ikke dig der vandt i denne omgang - men jeg ville ikke snyde dig for en KÆMPE kompliment efter at have besøgt din blog.

Hvor er det nogle fantastiske illustrationer du laver. Jeg er DYBT imponeret :)

Jeg vil glæde mig til at følge dig i fremtiden..

Mange hilsner,
