Fat Thursday

Poland has an interesting tradition called Fat Thursday. I think it's somehow tied into giving up something for lent, a Catholic practice....On Fat Thursday everyone
gorges themselves in preparation for giving something up on Friday.
The food of choice is płączki---a filled donut.

So naturally, we had to try out this tradition too.

The missionaries had a contest to see who could eat the most....
Sister Banner 3
Elder Banner 5
Elder Fuller 40!!!

that's crazy. i don't know how he did it. sounds like a fun tradition, though, and a good excuse to forget the diet for a day!
