Beginning of lent

Do you celebrate Mardi Gras (fat tuesday), the Venice carnical, pancake day (sponsored by Jiff) or Fastalavn?

Living in the UK it is officially the day for pancakes with lemon juice. However, back in the country where I was brought up we had another way of getting rid of our excess flour, milk and eggs. We make fastalavnsboller, which is basically a bun with a custard centre. Not dissimilar to the American donut. Is it more than danish pastry which originated in Denmark. (Not that danish pastry actually originated in Denmark, but that is another story).

So if you don't fancy flipping pancakes onto your kitchen ceiling tonight, have a donut.
