Happy Mardi Gras (and Happy Paczki Day) 2005!

Happy Paczki Day! What’s a paczki? It’s a Polish tradition. It’s a traditional deep fried pastry (like a jelly doughnut, but heavier) that’s filled with either a jelly, custard, chocolate or prune filling. You can find out more about Paczki Day by clicking here (Wikipedia), here, here, and here.

Last year, Fat Tuesday was February 24th. This year, it’s more than 2 weeks early. Before we know it, it will be in January…. By the way, for all of you Catholics out there, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. Time to get your prayer on….
