Abstract
The three days prior to Easter Sunday are important across the world for Catholics, as it typically marks the end of their Lent. Celebrations take up most of that weekend up until Easter Sunday itself when families, Catholic or not, will share candies and a large meal. The day after Easter is usually uneventful as it marks the return of the work week, except in the cities of South Bend and Buffalo. If one were to find themselves on Easter Monday in South Bend, Indiana, they would be greeted to thousands of Polish Americans parading through the street for a holiday known as Dyngus Day. That same day halfway across the United States, citizens of Buffalo, New York celebrate by indulging themselves with sausages, beer, and an old mating ritual that takes on a peculiar look.1
