Fettisdagen (Fat Tuesday[1]) is the Swedish name for Shrove Tuesday, the Tuesday after the Quinquagesima and the day between Shrove Monday, andAsh Wednesday. Because it is the last day before the Lenten fast, a tradition has been created of eating buns, called "fastlagsbullar", "fettisdagsbullar" (Fat Tuesday Buns) or "semla". The day is also called "White Tuesday" since the buns were made out of white flour.

The day is called "Mardi Gras" in France. The day is called "fastlagstisdag" in Swedish Finland.
