In Denmark we celebrate FASTELAVN* today and as it is tradition the children dress up, and hit a wooden barrel (pinâta style) The one that smashes the last piece of wood so it falls down, is crowned King of Cats - a very difficult title to achieve. Well wouldn't you know - today the big one managed to do it - and was proudly crowned King (she wanted to be the Queen, but that's not the proper title:)
* Fastelavn is the name for Carnival in Denmark and Norway which is either the Sunday or Monday before Ash Wednesday. Fastelavn evolved from the Roman Catholic tradition of celebrating in the days before Lent, but after Denmark became a Protestant nation, the holiday became less specifically religious. This holiday occurs seven weeks before Easter Sunday and is sometimes described as a Nordic Halloween, with children dressing up in costumes and gathering treats for the Fastelavn feast. The holiday is generally considered to be a time for children's fun and family games.
