  1. I grew up Amish and never heard of Faschnaut Day until today. Exactly what is it supposed to be?

  3. Faschnaut day is one of my favorite days of the year. I grew up in the Reading, PA area. I'm Pennsylvania Dutch (not Amish). I remember my grandmother ordering her Faschnauts from the bakery weeks in advance and our excitement about getting them in school. They are a potato based donut usually plan or covered in sugar. Even though I now live in Brooklyn, NY, my son and I make Faschnauts every year. Keeping the tradition alive!

  4. It's also called donut day, the Tuesday before Lent is the last day to indulge in fattening food before Lent.
