Some interesting trivia from Wikipedia:

"In the large Polish community of Chicago, and other large cities across the Midwest, Pączki Day is celebrated annually by immigrants and locals alike. In Buffalo, Toledo, Cleveland, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee, South Bend, and Windsor, Pączki Day is more commonly celebrated on Fat Tuesday instead of Fat Thursday. Chicago celebrates the festival on both Fat Thursday and Fat Tuesday, due to its sizable Polish population."

And this one:

In "Argentina, it's called Berlinesas (Spanish for "Berliner") or "Bolas de Fraile" (Monk's Balls)"

Anyway, I hope you're all doing well. Greetings from a cold Germany--where the ice happens to be melting today!
