Traditional events include slå katten af tønden ("hit the cat out of the barrel"). The Danes use a wooden barrel, which is full of candy and sometimes & the last child to get the candy to spills out of the barrel is crowned the kattedronning ("queen of cats") or kattekonge ("king of cats")

#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 Today the buns have been replaced by money.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.
