Happy Dyngus Day!




Have you heard of Dyngus Day?


Well if you are Polish and from Buffalo
 you surely have and are off work today celebrating!
Boys with their squirt guns and girls with their pussy willows...
Love is in the air 

One thing I love about living around Buffalo is it's ethnicity.
There is huge Polish communities, Irish communities and German,Italian, Ukraine.
 People that honor and celebrate their nationality.

My favorite Anderson Cooper made a little fun of Dyngus day on his Ridiculist a while back...
Buffalo invited him to be the Pussy Willow Prince in the parade....
Unfortunately he had a schedule conflict! 


Happy Monday
Happy April Fools Day! 
Happy Dyngus Day!

I think it's great when communities celebrate their ethnic heritage. And these types of celebrations also teach about all ethnic backgrounds, which is very important.

Wow! I never knew there was a Dyngus Day. It's always neat to learn about other cultures and traditions.

Did they play that whole Anderson Cooper report? I love it when TV personalities lose it.
Happy Dyngus Day - they must celebrate around Chicago.

Never heard of that day! I do miss the ethnic communities we had when I was growing up in Chicago. Have a wonderful week.

How could I have lived so close to Buffalo for so many years and never heard of Dyngus Day! It sounds so fun.
