Every year we look forward to celebrating Fastelavn*. As per tradition we smash the living daylight out of the barrel, and go trick or treating. The children look forward to getting dressed up, and this year Audrey opted to be a circus artist - a line dancer. She has an amazing dress from Tutudumonde, and it was perfect. I naturally had to photograph her, and these are some of my favourite images.
Happy Monday folks, it has turned freezing here again, and we look forward to spring.
* 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.
