My husband grew up in Buffalo, which is about an hour west of here.
Every Easter, when my in-laws leave our house to return to Buffalo, they wish us a Happy Dyngus Day. I've asked my husband about Dyngus Day, and he gives me vague explanations of people hitting each other with pussy willows.
I figured I'd do a bit of research on the day as an excuse for a very short post. Here's the scoop.
The annual celebration is held in Buffalo the Monday after Easter. On Dyngus Day, men and boys flirtatiously swat women and girls with pussy willows and squirt them with squirt guns. And there's lots of partying.
So guys, celebrate Dyngus Day by finding a pussy willow and swatting some girls with it. And do report back and let me know how that goes for you.
