 Quinquagesima Sunday 

it's fastelaven (quinquagesima sunday ) in norway today, which is 40 days before easter... it's typical to make shrovetide bun with cream. it's ancient customs, which at first belonged to a pagan spring festival. the practice refers therefore to the transition from winter to spring. best preserved is "fastelavnsriset", which was used as a "fertility-opener" for the fields, trees, animals and the family's women. other customs were dressing up, weapons, fights, ritual burning of a fire, and to tie naked virgins in front of the plow.. ( glad they only kept the "fastelavensris"
