Happy Dyngus Day



Dyngus Day doesn't get a lot of attention down here in Charlottesville, but in Buffalo, where there is a large Polish population, and a large celebration each year, everybody knows that Easter Monday is Dyngus Day. I'm not Polish, but from what I recall, Dyngus Day involves drinking beer and hitting people with pussywillow branches. Although, image searches for Dyngus Day bring up pictures of people pouring water on eachother.




Na zdrowie!
