When I first moved to Scandinvia I asked what the colorful branches were and got told that it's called 'fastelavnsris'. I misunderstood and thought they said they're celebrating 'faste lave pris' (everyday low prices). Given the price levels in Scandinavia for everything I figured it was a sarcastic celebration.
