Shrove or Fat Tuesday is Tuesday, Feb. 24. It's the day observed as a time of merrymaking before Lenten fasting that begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 25.
Fastnachts are doughnuts traditionally eaten on Shrove Tuesday.
We'd like to know if your church or organization will be making fastnachts for a Fat Tuesday fund-raiser. We'd also like to share your fastnacht recipes.
