Paczki's (Pounchki) Day; Delicious Food for Fat Thursday &Tuesday
Poles celebrate the time of a carnival with balls and dances. The culmination of a carnival is a last week before Ash Wednesday. Poles do not organize street parades like people in Brazil or in New Orleans. I guess it is just too cold in winter. But they eat pounchki ( pounczki ). The other sweet food for the last days of carnival include Angel Wings, Chrusciki (Chruschiki) and Poppy seed rolls ( Makowiec ).
