Τσικνοπέμπτη Fat Thursday, Tsiknopempti;

Tsiknopempti (Greek: Τσικνοπέμπτη, [t͡sik.noˈpem.pti]) is part of the traditional celebrations of Apókries (Απόκριες), the Greek Carnival season. The celebration, normally translated as Smelly Thursday, Charred Thursday, or Smoky Thursday, centers on the consumption of large amounts of grilled and roasted meats.
Tsiknopempti - Wikipedia

Tsiknopempti is an annual rite in Greece, which has gained increasing popularity recently in light of Apokries, whose origin is lost through the centuries. It basically is a day of meat eating before lent and fasting begin. The word Tsiknopempti comes from two other words 'tsikna' (the smell of burnt and grilled meat) and 'Pempti' (Thursday in Greek) and is celebrated on the Thursday, which is 11 days before Clean Monday.  Traditionally, everyone must cook meat so that the smoke or “tsikna” fills the air and everybody knows it's a feast-day

Fat Thursday (German Fetter Donnerstag, Schmotziger Donnerstag, or in areas where carnival is celebrated Weiberfastnacht; Greek Τσικνοπέμπτι (Tsiknopempti) ; Polish Tłusty czwartek) is a traditional Polish, Greek and German feast marking the last Thursday before Lent and is associated with the celebration of Carnival. Because Lent is a time of fasting, the next opportunity to feast would not be until Easter. It is similar to, but should not be confused with, the French festival of Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday"). Traditionally it is a day dedicated to eating, when people meet in their homes or cafés with their friends and relatives and eat large quantities of sweets, cakes and other meals forbidden during Lent. Among the most popular all-national dishes served on that day are pączki or berliner, fist-sized donuts filled with rose marmalade, and faworki, French dough fingers served with lots of powdered sugar.
Fat Thursday - Wikipedia

Οι τρεις εβδομάδες πριν την αρχή της Σαρακοστής ονομάζονται Προφωνή, Κρεατινή και της Τυροφάγου.
Στο μέσο της Κρεατινής εβδομάδας βρίσκεται η Τσικνοπέμπτη, κατά την οποία παραδοσιακά καταναλώνεται μεγάλη ποσότητα κρέατος, εν είδει προετοιμασίας για τη νηστεία της Σαρακοστής. Για την ορθόδοξη παράδοση, οι νηστείες της Τετάρτης και της Παρασκευής είναι σημαντικές, οπότε η Πέμπτη θεωρούνταν η καταλληλότερη μέρα για κραιπάλες.
Παρόμοιες γιορτές έχουν και άλλα χριστιανικά έθνη, όπως το Schmutziger Donnerstag στη Γερμανία και τη Mardi Gras ("Λιπαρή Τρίτη") στη Γαλλία που όμως αντιστοιχεί στην Ορθόδοξη Καθαρά Δευτέρα. Η τελευταία γιορτάζεται και σε παλαιά γαλλόφωνες περιοχές, όπως στη Νέα Ορλεάνη.
