Facts and History: About the traditional Paczki Day, a holiday celebrated in large Polish communities across the United States on Fat Tuesday, revolves around a small, jelly-filled doughnut. By ordering for Fat Tuesday prior to Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent is one of the most important holidays, and it mainly revolves around eating as many doughnuts as possible, all in the name of good luck. Polish doughnuts are from coast to coast like Chicago, Michigan, all of Ohio, Detroit and Windsor. The crowd follows the Polish bakery in Phoenix for these popular Paczkis. Windsor, Ontario, remains the Canadian capital of paczki.

Drivers in Michigan better get ready to loosen their belts. For Fat Tuesday this year, 108 billboards across the state are tempting motorists to indulge in the twice-fried, pre-Lenten treats called paczkis.
