Special Easter 2010 Games

Ducking Monday

In some countries Easter Monday is refered to as "Ducking Monday". The reason was that on this day young girls were thrown in ponds or lakes. The girls were expected to find this funny. They were told it would make them better wives and also that they were more likely to have children.

Chalk Sunday

The Sunday before Lent was known as Chalk Sunday because it was on this day that children would run up to unmarried people as they walked to or from church and put cahlk markings on their clothes.
