Fat Thursday ? We had a "Mardi Gras" (fat tuesday) in France. It's no longer celebrated (as far as i know.)
We have a Fettisdag (Fat Tuesday) in Sweden as well. It is the same as Mardi Gras in France...
Yeah, I think it's Tuesday as well here in Spain. But hey! Haven't you guys read the last paragraph? We Poles are ECCENTRIC, okay? ;)
Definitely need something about that one king from back in the 13th century or so, what was her name? Yeah, that's right, HER name - I seem to recall hearing once that Poland had this law requiring a king to rule, but there were no male heirs to the throne, so they simply named a girl from the royal family king, since they couldn't call her queen!

It was the 14th century, actually. Her name was st. Jadwiga. Here you've info about her: Jadwiga of Poland
