Get out the water guns, because today is Dyngus Day.
Not familiar? Dyngus Day is a big Polish-American celebration that involves people throwing water over each other and sometimes some light spanking with pussy willow branches.
If you're still unclear, you might want to ask a friend from Buffalo, Cleveland or South Bend, Indiana, where the nation's largest Dyngus Day celebrations happen each year on the Monday after Easter.
"It's really fat Tuesday on the other side of Lent," is how the Dyngus Day Buffalo president explained it to Buffalo news station WIVB.
It's not as widespread here in Florida, but we were able to find a few Dyngus Day celebrations in the Tampa Bay area.
