It's Dyngus Day

Happy Dyngus Day!

According to Polish tradition, it's the day boys sprinkle girls they like, with water and then give them a tap with a pussy willow branch, then on the Tuesday after Easter the girls follow suit.

To celebrate all you have to do is cross the border into Buffalo which proudly calls itself the Dyngus Day Capital of the World.

A parade runs through the historic Polonia neighbourhood later this afternoon, followed by a long list of parties that include pierogies and polka bands.

So grab your squirt gun and a pussy willow and celebrate the day.
