No it won't, it will get outlawed along with everything else that is safely fun. Someone will complain that it is a form of "assault". It's the sad truth, one American ruins it for the rest. :(

It appears to be used for multi occasions.. Hmmmmmmm

You think it's a good idea to sneek up the window and get your polish friend wet?

We always did that in Poland with my brothers and sisters and cousins and neighbors. We had bottles, pails, squirt-guns whatever and we would hide on the roof, behind buildings, from windows, etc. Lasted the whole day.

Big water-fights!

Yeah I`ll just tell the cops its Smingus- Dingus night....

Yeah, I can just see their expression when you tell them that! hahahahaha

When I lived in NJ we waited for our neighbors, who were Polish, to drive by with their windows open and then we spray them with the hose......good laughs :)

I've heard people from the city don't like this tradition too much in Poland and they call the police... :( At least those who have cell phones (most).

If they play nice it's no problem, but when the hooligans get out hand then it's time to call the police and watch them get dranched. LOL :)

Thats why we do it.....

So U enjoy pissing people off yeah??

I usually had to take a day off when I was in Poland on Smigus dyngus as it wasn't possible for me to get to the bus station dry (and I was dealing with clients so I couldn't be wet :).

Then I make them laugh. No one can resist the Polish charm. Not even my teachers. Can't tell you the number of times I've gotten out of detentions because I can woo them over. :) They love me. Teacher's I haven't had yet know my name before I get to class. Even the nice ladies in the office and lunch ladies know me.

But that's beside the point. Wouldn't you like to pour a bucket of water on some stingy people who complain too much? I sure as hell would.

People just wet each other, basically? Why?
mlody  
7 Mar 2007 /  #58
Yes. Because it's fun! Girls like being chased by boys and boys like being chased by the police or angry neighbours :).

Is this done on one special day or is it just anytime? If it's done on one specific day, why on that day? That's what I don't get.

It is done once a year only on Easter Monday.
