GÆKKEBREV unique Danish Easter tradition http://denmark.dk/en/meet-the-danes/traditions/easter/

Halloween at Tivoli Gardens - Denmark has only recently started to embrace Halloween. It is now more commercial and heavily inspired by the American tradition, where children dress up in scary costumes and go round in the neighborhood trick-or-treating. Halloween parties with scary costumes are now becoming much more popular with each year, and you will see Halloween-themed decorations and even a few pumpkins here and there. The main celebration of this kind is still "Fastelavn' in February.

Fastelavn (Shrovetide), celebrated between Feb1-March7 is a children’s festival, They dress up & go door to door with their collection tins asking to be given "buns." The buns are a legacy from the days when many people partly lived on the breadline & rarely got pastry. Today the buns have been replaced by money. Children also ‘tilt at the cat in the barrel,'hitting a suspended barrel filled with sweets & other goodies with clubs.
