All males in Poland have their special day too! Posted by on Sep 30, 2017 in Calendar, Culture, Holidays

We all heard about Women’s day in Poland! But how about men? Not too worry! We remember about them as well:) Boy’s Day (Dzień Chłopaka) is an informal holiday celebrated in Poland on September 30!

Although the celebration is unofficial, it is quite popular among high school and university students. Quite often it is celebrated among colleagues at work places.  The exact origin of the holiday is unknown, but most likely it was created to complement Women’s Day (March 8), so that boys would not feel left out and would have a chance to receive presents and greetings from girls. Interestingly, there are several holidays dedicated to men in Poland: along with Boy’s Day, Poles celebrate Father’s Day and Grandfather’s Day.

On Boy’s Day, all men in Poland receive small gifts, such as chocolates, souvenirs, and greeting cards. For girls, this is a chance to express their feelings to boys they like. Sometimes special events are organized at schools. The holiday is becoming more popular each year due to increasing promotion on the media, especially the Internet and social networking sites. And, just like many other holidays of this kind, it is also becoming more commercialized. A lot of adults celebrate this day at work as well. Women make sure that al of the guys working with them feel special on this day!

Well, we couldn’t live without them! Boys/men need attention too!

I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them!
