Makes me wonder. I've been to Rio and the place is out of control, I wonder what it is like during Carnival?

Aren't you supposed to go to confession or something?

For some of us it's Paczki Day.

What is Paczki day and how does one pronounce it?

Hey, where do you really live?

It sounds like: Punch key. It's a Polish tradition here in the states you celebrate before Ash Wednesday. A paczki is a really large jelly filled type dounut with tons and tons of calories. People in cities like Detroit, Chicago and Cleveland, where large numbers of Poles settled, would know about it.

The Pennsylvania Dutch call it fasnacht day.
