Polish Day ...

Today is 'Tłusty czwartek' or Fat Thursday in Poland ...

The Polish people will eat 100 million doughnuts (in Polish ‘pączki’ ) today to celebrate Fat Thursday, traditionally observed, in the last week of ‘carnival’ before Lent ...


Tradition says that those who fail to eat a doughnut on Fat Thursday will bring misfortune upon themselves for the whole next year to come.

As SWMBO is off to the hospital, for another attempt at Chemo this morning on #WorldCancerDay , lets stick with tradition. So just to help out, better eat one of these bad boys, which were delivered to us late last night ...

Our Greek friends have another month to wait, before Tsiknopempti - but it is a National Strike day in Greece today...

Later update:

Its serious business, had to seek out fresh supplies ...



So I returned with three different types of Polish ‘Pączki' and some 'Faworki' - Angel wings ...
