Happy Fausnaught Day

Photo-A-Day #2510

Allison picked up the tradition of Happy Fausnaught Day when she was in school in Pennsylvania. Each year on Mardis Gras we get donuts to celebrate. In past years Allison has gotten cake donuts and let Eva and her friend decorate them. Fausnaught is German for donut and Fausnaught Day is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Bakeries would make these donuts from leftover ingredients before Lent happened and people went to a more restricted diet. It is big in the Philly area.
