On Easter Monday in Hungary, the men visit women, say a poem about finding beautiful flowers in the woods and asking permission to water them. Then they either throw a bucket of water on the women or squirt them with perfume. The women then give them an egg, chocolate, cookies or cake. Here are two of the beautiful flowers that I watered with perfume. The first gave me (Caroly and Kim) cake, the second a boiled egg. As you can tell, they were all delighted.
One student in our English class said he threw a glass of water on this wife while she was still in bed! He didn't report on how delighted she was.
