Tłusty Czwartek / Fat Thursday

The PMA and PRCUA happily celebrate Tłusty Czwartek or Pączki Day, thanks to delicious sponsorship from Kasia’s Deli!

As a Christian tradition, Pączki Day is a celebration of the end of winter through a feast of fatty foods. The tradition of making and eating sweet pączki on Pączki Day started in Poland in the 16th century. Poles celebrate on Fat Thursday, today, and Americans celebrate it Fat Tuesday, February 21 this year. In the Christian calendar, Fat Thursday is traditionally the last Thursday before Lent, falling during the last week of the Carnival season which lasts till the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Poles on Fat Thursday have pączki, and on Fat Tuesday, due to its rich fish oils – herring.
