Today is Shrove Tuesday! Vastlapäev!

Today is Vastlapäev! The day traditionally associated with the anticipation of spring. 
Time to enjoy some cream buns, pea soup or sledging! 

The Estonian Open Air Museum will host their annual 'Shrovetide' event today. 
Looks like a lot of fun!

This historic document, dating back to 1546 reveals what aldermen ate in Estonia on Vastlapäev.
I'm not too keen on the pig trotters!
