•My school has steady traditions every year to celebrate Pancake Day.
•We make preparations for this festival in advance - we need to make masks! (1)

•The fourth formers are trying papier-mache technique.
The first formers start from the simple technique but safely one. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Essentially we have educational lesson in “Aušros” museum where we get lots of new knowledge about Shrove Tuesday. (7)

•Shrove Tuesday is a very old festival known in all Europe. The main thing is to chase away winter and to encourage spring to set in. (8, 9)

We enjoy being at the museum. There are lots of masks here! How interesting is to try them on, to imagine how people celebrated this festival 50 years ago! (10, 11)

At last we have Pancake Day! It comes not only in the city but to my school, too!

Porker and Cannabic’s fight. Who will win? It knows even the first former – stronger is Cannabic! (12)

Winter, winter, cheese from the yard! Of course, we don’t wait for midnight and burn More. (13)

•Now we’re going to eat pancakes.
•And… we’re waiting for slightly lingered SPRING!
