Easter sprinkling in Hosszúhetény, Southern Hungary
On Easter Monday boys and men visit their women relatives, friends, neighbours, often even if they are not close friends. They usually go in small groups and are "armed" with buckets, soda-water siphon or cologne water. The "tour" usually starts early in the morning and lasts all day long. They greet girls and women with shorter funny and somtimes a bit blue poems then sprinkle women. The women must be well-prepared, they treat men with dessert and beverages - and with hand-painted eggs. At the end of the day women usually wear a dozen of different colognes and sometimes the men have the sun in their eyes from the many cups of beverages.
