Thowing Buckets of Water on Young Girls – A Hungarian Easter Tradition

Each year around Easter, a handful of Hungarians take part in a tradition dating back to 2nd century AD. Donning traditional garb, boys and girls take to the streets for what they call the “watering of the girls.”

It’s a fertility ritual from a pre-Christian time in Hungarian tribes, where boys throw buckets of water of young girls running past them.
