Shrovetide is a traditional non-religious holiday in Denmark begining in Germany. It is a children’s day, but most adults join them to celebrate. It is a seasonal festival to cele-brate the coming of spring.
On this day children wear funny clothes and paint their faces with colors. People stand-ing in lines knock a wooden bucket② hanged on a rope with a wooden stick. The bucket is scattered③ piece by piece. The person who knocks off the last piece of the wood will get a prize, usually candies and chocolates. Children also knock a bucket while riding bikes and adults knock a bucket on horse back. All the celebration shows people’s happiness to say goodbye to the long dark winter and to welcome the lively spring.
