Fastelavn 2021

We were incredibly lucky to celebrate Fastelavn this year, February 14 the day our mask restrictions ended here in Perth. All the more fortunate since most fastelavn festivities in Scandinavia didn’t go ahead this year due to the covid situation there.

It was a hot day at Nordic House, and while the grownups cooled down with a cold beer, the kids ran through the sprinkler to cool off.

Our two kattekonge (cat kings) this year were brothers Oscar and Christian Roland, delivering the damaging first and fatal last blow to the barrel.

As usual there were games and fastelavnsboller and the kids also made use of the playroom and outdoor play equipment at the house.

It was great to see familiar faces and some new ones as we welcome new families to our Scanclub family here in Perth.
