Dyngus Day (http://www.dyngusdaybuffalo.com/whatisdyngusday.html) is a Polish holiday always celebrated on the Monday after Easter. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif


It was custom to throw water and hit the girls on their legs with twigs or pussywillows. Cologne was used instead of water by the more gallant lads. The ladies would reciprocate by throwing dishes & crockery and Tuesday was their day of revenge, imitating the same tactics.


Everyone's Irish on St. Patty's Day, and everyone's Polish on Dyngus Day! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

They would break their dishes? Sounds made up.

When i saw the title of this thread Mookle, i thought you had gotten laid and you were suddenly bragging about how happy your Dyngus was.

No? Oh...uh...carry on.
