Užgavėnės is a Lithuanian festival that takes place during the seventh week before Easter (Ash Wednesday). Its name in English means “the time before Lent”. The celebration corresponds to Roman Catholic holiday traditions in other parts of the world, such as Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, and Carnaval.
On the 7th of February we attended that event with our mentor Tomas. We tried some traditional food, pancakes, beer and porridge. We had a great time there.
