Tuesday 5 February 2008: Fat Tuesday
Today is "Fat Tuesday" (Shrove Tuesday) - the last day before Lent. Traditionally you should indulge in eating "semlor" and other fatty stuff today, in order to accumulate some fat tissue to burn during Lent. A "semla" is a wheat bun filled with cream and almond paste. Very tasty!
Swedes don't care much about Lent, but we are very keen on eating "semlor". And not only on Fat Tuesday.
