This holiday is celebrated around the world the day before Lent begins. It’s a day of feasting before fasting. Approximately two to three months after Yule, it is a good time to begin a spring clean-out. Bake hot cross buns or a king cake, or prepare a nourishing soup and let it simmer. While working in the kitchen, purge any outdated items and unused or broken tools. Whether there is snow on the ground or you are in the middle of a heat wave, invite friends and loved ones over for the evening meal. Dress in green, gold, and purple. Send everyone home with a portion of the meal and a slice of cake or a bun.
