Gustavus Adolphus Day

Today is the day when we commemorate the great King Gustavus II Adolphus of Sweden. He was killed in battle at Lützen on the 6th of November 1632, fighting for religious freedom.

Gustavus Adolphus is usually commemorated by eating Gustavus Adolphus cakes. We are not allowed to eat these at our home, though, because one of the main things of these cakes are chocolate silhouettes of the King. Humans always claim chocolate contains an ingredient that is poisonous for dogs. Oh, well, I guess we can say the Gustavus Adolphus day is a good day anyway. We did get to taste some meat sauce.
