I’m not really one for Easter, but I couldn’t let this Easter Monday pass without taking the opportunity to post…well, we’ll get to that…
Śmigus Dyngus (pronounced SHMEE-gooss DIN-gooss), which is sometimes described as Wet Monday, is a Polish tradition of pouring water as a symbol of cleansing, purification, and fertility.
In the past boys would pour perfumed water on the girls, but nowadays it mostly consists of you walking down the road to visit family dressed in your best get-up and some teenage w*nker pouring a bucket of cold water on you or a family member p*ssing you off first thing in the morning with their made-in-china water gun.
far be it for me to tamper with tradition, so let’s celebrate Wet Monday the best way I know how: with a round of Wet Armitage!
Ladies, buckets at the ready and douse at will!
(don’t worry, I hear he doesn’t mind getting a bit wet…)
Happy Śmigus Dyngus!
