With the recent weather, we're not sure if it's false spring or real spring, but we're always looking for a reason to celebrate emerging from the winter darkness. In Danish culture, this transition is marked by a celebration called Fastelavn, and Nordic Northwest is marking the occasion with an afternoon of traditional crafts, games, snacks, and a costume contest! Festivities include decorating birch twigs (fastelavnsris), whacking a barrel full of candy, and singing the Fastelavn song about delicious cream-filled pastries (fastelavnsboller), which will also be available to try. by Shannon Lubetich
