Popular Polish proverbs about Spring Posted by on Mar 26, 2021 in Environment, Grammar, Phrases, Vocabulary

Spring is here! We are ready for sun, warm temperatures and birds singing, right? We might be ready, but weather likes to play tricks on us sometimes…

Here are most popular Polish proverbs about Spring, the weather and everything that is happening around this time of the year! Proverbs (przysłowia) about spring is a folk wisdom that includes warnings, instructions, orders, prohibitions. Today we approach them with greater distance, but they still remain relevant.

About the Author: Kasia

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! 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! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.

    I think it’s Fat Tuesday, not Thursday. MARDI gras! Paczki are a favorite, too.
    Do widzenia!

    Hello Kasia! Thank you for reminding me why my mother used to hit me with palms on Palm Sunday. This is the first Easter without her and I don’t want to ever forget my Polish upbringing. My grandparents immigrated from Poland so many years ago. I still take pride in being Polish and am proud of it!

    • Kasia:

      @Dorothy Malanowski Brady That’s wonderful Dorothy that you are proud to be Polish! Check out my blogs as often as you can and send a message if you have any questions.

    Hello Kasie, you are so right about giving that gift to your daughters. My grandparents came at turn of the century late 1800’s early 1900 and they relied on their children to learn English and then my parents spoke it by they did not teach the children. I know some words and little more. It was a big mistake. Thank you for your website and fyi I live in MA, grew up in a very heavily Polish community, Webster MA. God Bless, Maryann
