Today is Fastnacht Day - that one day a year where it's OK for us simple Pennsylvania Dutch folks to pig out on doughnuts. I explained this tradition last year in THIS blog post.
While Central Pennsylvanians celebrate Fastnacht Day - New Orleans throws their biggest party of the year - Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday). "LAISSEZ LES BON TEMPS ROULEZ!!" - Let the good times roll, BITCHES!!
In my opinion, the New Orleans' version is MUCH better...
