Poles celebrate what is known as Fat Thursday which in olden days was a day (or several days, depending upon who you ask) of eating large amounts of foods that were forbidden during Lent. In modern times, Fat Thursday is equated with the eating of the sugary treat, pączki, which are not prepared in advance but are freshly made throughout the day. Due to the popularity of the holiday, bakeries find it to be one their busiest days of the year.
