No Icelandic people were harmed in the making of this holiday

We've been celebrating Bunny Day for a while here at Heaneyland, but festivities have slackened off a bit lately. So thank heavens there is a new, surprisingly not-made-up holiday to celebrate today: Bun Day!

On Bun Day, Icelandic children beat their parents with "bun wands", an act for which they receive cream puffs. God, Iceland is awesome. I just want to pick it up and hug it.

My girlfriend has a bun day at her workplace (in the UK) once a month. Unfortunately, beating the bosses with sticks isn't a requirement for obtaining the buns.

Bun Day is always two days before Ash Wednesday. In 2008, Ash Wednesday falls on February 6, which means Bun Day is February 4. Even though my family is American, we still celebrate it, though my parents outlawed the "bun wand". lol
