ticketsmallS.A.D. Society of Adventurous Diners

Finally, it’s good to be sad.

Our fourth S.A.D. dinner will be held March 28, 2016 because everybody is Polish on Dyngus Day!

The occurrence of the celebration across the western Slav countries suggests a common origin in pagan mythology, possibly related to the tradition of watering the Corn Mother (represented in the form of a doll or wreath made from corn) which would be symbolically drenched in water and kept over the winter until its grain was mixed with the seed corn in the spring to ensure a successful harvest. Hundreds of years later, this led to boys and girls throwing water on one another. In more recent years, the ancient celebration has become a fusion of Polish and American traditions, with polka bands, a parade, and Polish food accompanying American patriotic songs sung in English. Party-goers often dress up in the red-and-white colors of the Polish flag and carry balloons saying “Happy Dyngus Day” in English. Commemorate at the DeYor inside Flad Pavilion and take part in traditional Polish fare like Kielbasa and Pierogi.
