Donut Day, also called Fastnacht Day, is the Pennsylvania Dutch tradition of making fastnachts (potato based donuts fried in Lard) on Shrove Tuesday, the day before the beginning of Lent. It is tradition to use up the items in your kitchen that wouldn’t be used during the semi-fasting period to follow.
