The fort in this piece was the stage of many good childhood memories for myself, my brother and our friend Ry. It began as an old chicken coup. We had adopted a bunch of chickens but the night after they moved in, a fox dug underneath their coop and had itself a massive feast.
Fastelavn is a Danish holiday, with some similarities to Halloween. In other cultures, it is known as Carnival. The holiday takes place the week before Lent. Children dress up in costumes. There is a game called “Hit the Cat Off the Barrel” – it’s basically a pinata.
