So today is Dyngus Day, or Śmigus-Dyngus, or Wet Monday. Whichever you prefer. It’s the celebration on the Monday after Easter that involves men squirting water at women and women swatting men with pussy willows. No, I didn’t make that up. The two biggest celebrations in the United States are in Buffalo and Cleveland, and this year I will be joining the celebration in Buffalo. I’m suspecting I’ll be in the sober adult minority. In any case, happy Dyngus!
