FAT THURSDAY.

Fat Thursday is a typical fest when people eat a lot of donuts and other sweets. The day of the fest is different every year. It’s always the last Thursday before the Lent. It’s the last Thursday of the carnival, so people want to have fun.

On Mardi Gras, which is a different name for this day, people eat donuts and angel wings, which are very popular in my country. Angel wings look funny, they are very light and sweet. They are made of fried yeast dough and are formed to look like wings. When they cool down, they are covered with icing sugar. But we mostly love donuts with sweet filling and frosting. Filling can be made of any jam, marmalade, chocolate or toffee. They are all full of calories, but also very tasty!
