Annual 'watering of the girls' goes back centuries

Annual 'watering of the girls' goes back centuries

Watering of the girls- fertility rite - Hungary.perhaps THIS was the problem! I didn't undergo this important fertility rite!

Hungarian Easter Tradition: This practice goes back to an old country custom. On Easter Monday, young farmhands are allowed to throw a bucket of cold well water over girls of marriageable age; and even to dip them in a stream. The sprinkling with water and the gift of Easter eggs is a pre-Christian fertility symbol far older than the celebration of Easter.
