  10. 10. Easter Monday On Easter Monday men and boys pour women and girls with water. When they come into a girl's house they try to find her because she is usually hid somewhere. When boys find her, they beat her with plaited willow and pour some water on the girl. Small boys say various traditional rhymes while doing this. Then they pour their parfume on the gril's hair. She gives them some cakes, chocolate Easter eggs or painted eggs, or even some money.
