It’s a thing. Trust me. My husband’s family is Irish and German, and apparently, where we celebrate the day before Lent with huge amounts of all kind of food, drink, and merriment, the Germans do it with…doughnuts. Yay. Hey now, don’t get all crazy like, big spenders. Oh well. It’s not something I grew up with, but as our kids are part German, we are trying to continue this tradition with them (although I’m sure this box of Dunkin is not quite what was intended). Happy Fastnacht Day folks!
