Dyngus Day History
Dyngus Day commemorates a historic day during the 10th century, when Mieszko I, the ruler of Poland made a mass baptism all over the country with the goal of converting all citizens to Christians. Polish Immigrants brought the tradition to the United States, and today, many communities with large Polish populations celebrate the observance. Dyngus Day occurs every year on the Monday after Easter Sunday.
