Every year, the lovely people of Poland celebrate Fat Thursday with some jelly-filled doughnuts, known in Polish as “pączki” (pronounced as “pon-ski”).
Today is that day for 2016! It is celebrated as a tradition just before the fasting of Lent (everybody needs to overindulge a bit before going on a diet, right?).
While the Polish store donuts pictured above don’t look that great, you get the idea. Jelly-filled donuts are always good in my books.
Random side note: “doughnut” is the correct spelling, but the word has become accepted as “donut” because of the American franchise Dunkin’ Donuts (as per grammarist.com).
