Dyngus Day is a real holiday I learned about while living in Buffalo, NY. It is of Polish heritage and takes place on Easter Monday. Polka music, pierogis and a parade. The three P’s of fun! Want to learn more?
Growing up in Baltimore we were always off school Good Friday and Easter Monday. Then I joined the Air Force and nobody had ever heard of Easter Monday.
I like the idea of the day after Easter being a holiday. Who doesn’t need a day to work off (sleep off) all that sugar consumed on Sunday?
It’s not too late to make travel plans to go to Buffalo, NY and celebrate in the Dyngus Day capital. Sure it may or may not still be snowing in mid-April there but trust me, no one can handle snow removal the way the city of Buffalo can!
Dingus Day is April 17th this year.
(AKA Easter Monday!)
