Easter in Hungary is all wet. Following a tradition begun most likely back in pagan times, young women are doused throughout the course of the day with water, or as is more common today, cologne, which is sprinkled in their hair. Sometimes the wetting is preceded with a poem, read by the young man who’s about to drench the young woman. The ladies compare notes to see who got doused the most often. Holiday festivities also include the painting of Easter eggs and housecleaning on Good Friday.
