Fastnacht is German for “night before the fast,” and it’s a tradition to eat deep-fried, sugar-covered Fastnacht doughnuts the day before Lent starts. Krumpe’s Do-Nuts in Hagerstown has been selling them for 75 years. The day before Lent isn’t the only celebration: On Dec. 31 a giant doughnut is even dropped from the clock tower on the square, and doughnuts, coffee and hot chocolate are doled out to help ring in the new year.
