English term or phrase: Green Monday
Green Monday falls 50 days before the Greek-Orthodox Easter and marks the beginning of Lent. It is celebrated in a.o. Cyprus, could be called either "grøn mandag", while some might prefer "ren mandag" or even "rosenmandag". Which one is the correct one in Danish, if any?

Dit forslag "rosenmandag" stammer sandsynligvis fra tysk "Rosenmontag", som er fastelavnsmandag.
