I know it's early, but...oh, what the heck!

Dyngus Day! The very name of this "holiday" makes us laugh! This time-honored tradition in the Polish communities of Buffalo, South Bend, and Chicago (and a few other places) marks the celebration of the end of Lent, the beginning of spring, Polish food and culture. Not to mention a little romance (as you all are aware, Polish is the language of love...), where guys and gals quietly approach that special someone they have their eye on and beat them silly with pussy willow branches! Yeah, it hurts, but we're Polish! We can take it!

I have posted a link on the sidebar for more information on the Buffalo festivities, so check it out and join the fun. Buffalo's Bishop Grosz, pastor of St. Stanislaus Church (Polonia's mother church in Buffalo) will welcome everyone and start the day off with blessings. Witamy!
