Sunday is the day to get dressed up as angels and super-heroes, clowns 
and wise men or whatever else you can think of (I was a phone-booth 
The service begins at 11:00 AM and the sermon is written for the 
children (adults usually understand anyway). Afterwards we go to the 
hall where there is Fastelavns-boller (pastry), and we "beat the cat off 
the barrel" - in the old tradition this was a way of getting rid of 
Satan, now it is just for the fun of it.

See you Sunday!
