Did you experience donut madness today? Do you wonder what the reason of its appearing is? It’s Fat Thursday (Tłusty czwartek in Polish)! Basically, the habit of eating greasy delicacies dates many centuries back, when eating fat treats would ensure prosperity and happiness for another year. Nowadays, the looks of donuts and the reason of their consumption have changed. Fat Thursday is the last Thursday before Lent (the time of fasting), which in turn prepares Christians for the most important holiday: Easter. Fat Thursday might be called one of the tastiest Polish traditions. Regardless of whether the holiday is celebrated on the grounds of religion, superstition, or the desire to continue the tradition, it is an inseparable part of the Polish culture. Bakeries and supermarkets solicit potential consumers by offering a wide variety of donuts with rosy stuffing, cheese, pudding, chocolate, etc. It is worth trying traditionally fried donut or dry crispy cake in a form of a bow. However, watch out if you keep to a diet – all dainties are very high in calories.
