Tłusty czwartek in Poland – beware of donuts!

Traditionally, as every year, we want to warn you of danger. No matter where you will go shopping today, your encounter with greasy delicacies is just unavoidable – nice looking donuts with rosy, cheese, pudding or chocolate stuffing or dry crispy cakes in a form of a bow – they all will seduce you to make an impulsive purchase and get a massive dose of calories. Watch out! It’s Fat Thursday (Tłusty czwartek in Polish) – the last Thursday before Lent (the time of fasting), which prepares Christians for the most important holiday: Easter. Some would call it 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.

Have you experienced the donut madness already?
