ronjohn, i just googled paczki, and found out that in america paczki day is fat tuesday, and in poland, it is fat thursday, aka thusty czwartek.
lol, maybe they haven't grasped the concept of a calendar yet, and are using one from a few years ago... ( i knew i could come up with a polish joke for that one
my neighborhood is so polish that when i was talking a walk down my block the other day, 2 people tried to begin conversations in polish with me: one in a car asking directions, the other on foot asking for a neighbor's address. and all kidding aside, the woman in the car was going up the block, a one way, the wrong way.
i told her she was driving like a dupa!
