My fiancé is Polish and she does this to me every single year that we’ve been together. I always forget about it too. I’ll just be sitting there working from home Monday morning and she comes over and dumps a glass of water on my head and I’m like… what the fuck. But now that I’ve seen this post, it reminded me and I’m going to get the jump on her this year. I’m going to wake up at 4am, go get a bucket of water, and dump it on her while she’s sleeping before she has to wake up for work at 5am. Can’t wait.


It’s a pretty common Easter practice in the central Slavic regions. Also seen in Czechia and Slovakia


Wait till Biggus Dickus hears of this!


Seems reasonable


If the Russians put a stop to this I’m enlisting in the Polish resistance
