Dingus Day

The Monday after Easter.

Online Buffalo:

Started in Poland as a way to provide merriment after the seriousness of Lent comes to an end. The tradition began when farm boys in Poland wanted to attract notice from the girls of their choice. It was custom to throw water and hit the girls on their legs with twigs or pussywillows.

Well that sounds like fun on so many levels.
