Fastnacht Day in Pennsylvania
It's Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent season. In our part of Pennsylvania, the "Pennsylvania Dutch" area, that means it's Fastnacht Day.
A Fastnacht is a kind of donut. Only much better than a regular donut. You HAVE to eat at least one fastnacht on Fastnacht Day. If you don't live in fastnacht country, then go ahead and have a regular ol' donut. Sad. But all you can do is the best you can do.
I'm havin' a fastnacht right now with my coffee. MMmmmmmmm.......
