Fat Thursday
Feb 8, 2016 Kelvin Grove

On Thursday 4th February, Year 6 celebrated the Polish Tradition of “Fat Thursday!” Fat Thursday, known as Tłusty Czwarte, is the custom of eating doughnuts (pączki) before Lent’s six-week period of self-denial on the run up to Easter. Traditionally it is a day dedicated to eating, when people meet in their homes or cafés with their friends and relatives and eat large quantities of sweets, cakes and other meals usually not eaten during Lent.It is widely considered to be bad luck not to eat at least one doughnut on Fat Thursday, so year six enjoyed indulging with their Polish peers! Besides doughnuts, other traditional products consumed on Fat Thursday include pastry straws (known as chrust or faworki) sprinkled with icing sugar.
