In the Czech Republic, gentlemen celebrate Easter Monday by spanking ladies with special Easter whips. Gently. Picture a kind, playful lashing. The kind that appropriately celebrates the resurrection of our Lord.

Post-whipping, ladies give the gentlemen colored eggs or money (money!) as a symbol of their gratitude. THANKS FOR SPANKS!

In some regions, ladies are doused with cold water instead of spanked.

Tradition is such a beautiful thing.
