Fat Thursday (Polish Tłusty czwartek; Hungarian torkos csütörtök, German Fetter Donnerstag, or in areas where carnival is celebrated Weiberfastnacht; Greek Τσικνοπέμπτη (Tsiknopempti); is a traditional Catholic feast marking the last Thursday before Lent and is associated with the celebration of Carnival. Because Lent is a time of fasting, the next opportunity to feast would not be until Easter. It is similar to, but should not be confused with, the French festival of Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday"). Traditionally it is a day dedicated to eating, when people meet with their friends and relatives and eat large quantities of sweets, cakes and other meals forbidden during Lent. Among the most popular all-national dishes served on that day are pączki, fist-sized donuts filled with rose marmalade, and faworki or Chrusciki (Angel Wings), French dough fingers served with lots of powdered sugar.
These ones who would like to taste Polish 'paczki" are warmly asked to post on the wall and I promise to share a secret where that would be possible.
with lots of love
