Wet Monday, a tradition of every family, university and flat in Poland
(VOVWORLD) - Poland’s “Wet Monday”, locally known as Śmigus Dyngus, takes place annually after Easter Sunday when people get water thrown on them. This year it falls on April 10. Traditionally boys soak girls on this special day, which is called one of the craziest Polish traditions. The girls often shriek in protest at being doused, but each wants to be splashed because it’s an acknowledgement of her attractiveness. I talked to Mateusz Dołhan, a Polish student, and Thanh Tra, a Vietnamese student studying in Poland, to learn more about this tradition.
