Fachingsdienstag in Vienna, Pancake day in London

Dienstag is Tuesday
Fasching is the equivalent to carneval!
Fasching is Fastnacht in Germany
Fasching is celebrated mainly in catholic areas

End of Fasching is tomorrow, called Aschermittwoch, Asd Wednesday.

And that Wednesday will be in the week of 7 sundays before Easter - always.
Therefore Faschingsdienstag is never before the 4th of February and never later than the 10th March

Here in Vienna we celebrate that day with the traditional Faschingskrapfen,  some people will be costumed the whole day and some will just drink a lot of bubbly wine! It's the heyday of the carneval time!
