Day trip to Rumsiskes to participate at the Shrove festival

What is Shrove Tuesday? Shrove Tuesday (February) celebration was particularly popular in Zemaitija. In some Zemaitian villages these traditions have survived to the present day.

The traditional figures in the carnival are the loan Kanapinis (the Hemp Man), Lasininis (the Fatty), a "Jew" offering his goods in broken Lithuanian, a "Gypsy" looking for something to pilfer, and a great number of other funny, caricature masks. Men disguise themselves as women, and vice versa. The old maid More - a female symbol of the clash between winter and spring - is trundled about in a cart. In one hand she usually holds a flail and in the other a broom, for she cannot make up her mind whether she should continues flailing last year's harvest or start sweeping the yard and do the spring-cleaning. Shrove Tuesday celebrations are full of humour, jokes, superstitions and fortune telling. It is a popular. People do not do any hard work on Shrove Tuesday. They go on swings and merry-go-rounds, visit friends, enjoy sledding down the slopes while others try to pour water on them. All this is done to make "flax grow tall", to ensure hens lay more eggs, birds do no damage to the corn, and so on and so forth.
