Today boys are celebrating their day in Poland! Posted by on Sep 30, 2020 in Culture, Holidays

Today is a happy day for boys in Poland! They all celebrate their unofficial holiday.

The exact origin of the holiday is unknown, but most likely it was created to complement Women’s Day (Dzień Kobiet, Which is celebrated on March 8th), so that boys would not feel left out:)

The holiday (Dzień Chłopaka – Boy’s Day) is especially popular among younger generations, in schools in particular. All the girls are making this day special for their male colleagues. I remember celebrating it mostly in the middle school, high school and college. All of the girls would come up with something extra special on this day. It could be a cake, cupcakes, movie night, small gifts. The holiday is becoming more popular each year due to increasing promotion on the media, especially the social networking sites.

This day can a be a lot of fun at home, in school or at work! You just have to get creative and have fun.

And you all know that Poles like to come up with as many holidays as possible – you have to keep your life interesting and celebration usually means happiness!

When I was in college, my closest friends and I would plan a really fun day for our male friends from our dorm house! We would make funny gifts, take them out for drinks, anything to make them feel special that day.

Boy’s Day should not be confused with Men’s Day (Dzień Meżczyzny), which is celebrated on March 10th and it is usually celebrated by older generations.

Anyway! No matter what age you are , enjoy your day!
