Doughnut Tuesday

For John, BLUFDoughnut (Donut) Tuesday is today.

To quote Wikipedia:

Immigrants have brought various doughnut varieties to the United States.  To celebrate Fat Tuesday in eastern Pennsylvania, churches sell a potato starch doughnut called a Fastnacht (or Fasnacht).  The treats are so popular there that Fat Tuesday is often called Fastnacht Day.

Not to be confused with Fasching, which is now ending.

I hope each of you have a reflective Lent and find something to give up, or something positive to do as your act of mortification.
