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!


  1. Happy (day after) Dyngus from Buffalo!
