Creampuff day is every monday before lent. We eat pastry with jam, cream and frosting on top. It is one of my favorite days of the year and fits well in the bleakness of winter and tells us winter is going to let go soon.
Today is fat tuesday wich we call exploding day were people eat a lot of salted mutton although people here don´t take part in lent anymore.
On ash wednesday children get the day off put on costumes and sing for candy in shops and companies all over town.
