Fat Tuesday

| Fat Tuesday | Waffle Day | Easter | Walpurgis Night | Mother’s Day |
| Midsummer | Halloween | Lucia | Christmas |

Fat Tuesday, or Fettisdag is a traditional holiday in Sweden. And not because they are necessarily Christian (which is where Fat Tuesday comes from, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, where a Christian fasting begins.) But because Swedes love their godis!

En Semla

So while Swedes will not necessarily fast on Wednesday, they will enjoy fat Tuesday, and the semlor traditionally baked and eaten on this day.That is about all Swedes do on Fat Tuesday. Eat semlor.

If you would like to have your own Fat Tuesday, you can find a recipe for the Swedish semlor.
