      I wouldn't say hard no haha, depends on the year. High school isn't bad especially if you're not doing the final exams :)

    Hei Kat, I think it would not be a harvest festival because there is not
    much to harvest at the end of the winter ! I think that in the UK it
    is pancakes with sugar and lemon and it was using up what was left of
    food from the winter before the fast until Easter. Thank you for the
    videos. Kiitos.

      @KatChats Laskiainen is the beginning of fasting so that's why people eat well. it takes excatly 40 days and ends to the easter. and the other traditions are from heathen origins

      True true, I think I translated it funny. It's työnjuhla so I guess more like workers party xD Idk but yes it was when women stopped making string from wool (idk the name for this activity) but yes you're right :) And yes I saw lots of people eating pancakes with sugar and lemon here (I'm in the UK) :D Thanks!

    Almond paste is infinitely better in Laskiaispulla than the strawberry jam.

    In Spain it's just the last day of Carnival, before we start 'Cuaresma' -or 'Lent' in english-. I don't think we eat anything spetial, but last week at the begining of Carnival in Fat thursday it's typical, at least in Catalonia region, to eat egg sausage, omlettes and a spetial type of pastry.

    Here in Missouri it's fat tuesday. Some celebrate it like they do in New Orleans with the king cake.

    In Upper Michigan we call it Fat Tuesday and we eat Paczkis, which are Polish donuts. I guess we have a large Polish population in our state so that must be why.

    I'm from the US, maybe this is just a Michigan thing, but paczkis are really popular for Mardi Gras. My coworkers and I all had a feast on the apple filled ones they were so so good!

    In Poland we have our own Shrove Tuesday and we actually celebrate in on Thursday (it's called Fat Thursday). We stuff ourselves with pączki (polish donuts with rose jam inside, yum) until we're sick 😂 There are queues piling up in front of bakeries all day long and people can wait for literal HOURS to get them. Also, in most schools on this day there are boxes full of them and you can help yourself (for free😉) and there are sometimes competitions for eating the biggest amount of pączki without using your hands. It's pretty crazy, but I love it, everyone is united in love for sweets!

    The best way to eat laskiaispulla is to put it in a bowl and pour warm milk on it. I was told to eat it that way a few years ago and now I can't go back to eating it without milk.

    In Russia it’s called Masleniza (I hope it’s the right spelling in Latin letters). It’s a whole week where people should prepare for the long fast until Eastern. So everybody eats loads of pancakes and everybody is also making pancakes. For those who will fast it’s not allowed to eat meat during this week and next Monday the fast begins and it lasts until Eastern or maybe some days before, I’m not sure.

    It's called pancake day here too. Which is no surprise because I also live in the UK.
    the one thing I remember as a kid was tossing the pancakes with our frying pans, and seeing if I could make it stick to the ceiling. I miss those days

    I would love to try these laskiaispulla, looks so yummy, hernekeitto is easy to make and sledding is so much fun. I think the tradition must be pancakes in the US, but I haven’t been to church in a while. I know they have the king’s cake for Mardi Gras.
