If you missed my blog post from yesterday regarding czech republics odd and in my opinion disrespectful tradition of whipping women on their behinds and dousing them with water in exchange for eggs or alcohol, on easter Monday, head to yesterday's blog to see...in response I have come up with a few alternatives that I think would be much more appropriate to evolve this ancient custom. I'm all about customs and traditions, but anything condoning the hitting of girls and women should be non existent.
Can you imagine our world if we had not abandoned many traditions from the past!
It is customary during this czech Monday whipping tradition that the men sing a song demanding eggs as they lightly whip women's rear ends, we have another idea much more respectful if we may... How about a serenade! How lovely it would be for the men in the village to go door to door and sing a lovely easter song for the women!
And here is another idea, how about if Easter, the religious holiday that it is, is celebrated for what it actually is. And maybe Monday could be a day to reflect on Jesus's resurrection, and yes, celebrate the beauty of this time of year!
