Happy Easter

Men, get out your whips, toss water at, and spank the women that you meet on Easter Monday. Wait what?

[...] Surely the strangest Easter custom takes places in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, where there is a tradition of spanking or whipping women on Easter Monday. Males throw water at females and spank them with handmade whips made of willow and decorated with ribbons at the end. The spanking is supposed to be symbolic and according to legend, females should be spanked in order to keep their health and beauty during the next year. [...]

And people think I am Strange.
