The second day of the holidays is also called a Wet Monday or śmingus-dyngus - boys still walk around the houses today and pour or symbolically spray with perfumes girls and women. Once the boys would pour cold water from buckets or throw them into the river. It was believed that any well-watered woman would be ‘healthy like a fish’. Boys and men receive gifts – colourful, sweets, money.

 

Also, the colour of the Easter egg mattered: the green egg meant hope, red – he got the chosen heart, yellow – meant refusal and lack of hope for further joint plans and brown egg were given to older men. 

 

Sometimes there was a rematch on Tuesday, and it was the girls who showered the boys with water.

 

Easter Monday is also the day when children look for a bunny nest. The children believed that the bunny brings sweet gifts and leaves them in the nest. This custom arrived in Silesia from Germany after World War I and was well established there. In some homes, children are looking for a bunny the day before, which is Easter Sunday.
