This ain't no pancake day

The fictional character Ture Sventon by Åke Holmberg. Here in illustrations by Sven Hemmel.

Today is Shrove Tuesday, which the British also refer to as Pancake Day.

This might be the one day of the year I feel Swedish and Swedish only, because I feel absolutely certain it's Fettisdagen (which calls for a semla or two, as partaken by the gentleman in the first illustration).

For the best semla in Stockholm go here (abroad the Swedish Church is normally the place to get a semla).
