What's Dyngus Day, you ask?

Śmingus-Dyngus as it is known in Poland, or Wet Monday (Lany poniedziałek), is a Polish holiday celebrated on the Monday after Easter. The festive spirit of Dyngus Day is infectious, with traditions including playful water fights, tapping loved ones with pussy willows, and, of course, the indulgence in Polish food, beer, and spirits. It’s a day filled with laughter, good food, and community spirit!
