Tlusty Czwartek

Say twoosty chfartek. That's Fat Thursday to you and doughnuts to me. Lots and lots of doughnuts today, which is the Thursday before Ash Wednesday, the day a priest marks the believer's forehead with the ashes of the palms blessed on the Palm Sunday of the previous year, and which is the seventh Wednesday before Easter, which is the Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox, approximately March 21, when day is again as long as night and the sun crosses the celestial equator moving northward, when the sun rises exactly in the east and traverses the sky for exactly twelve hours and sets exactly in the west, when spring returns.

But Ye shall know this Day by the myriad Dough-nuts.
