2) About Polish people
Poland is one of the few countries in the world, where courteous hand-kissing is still a common practice.
Easter Monday in Poland is called Śmigus-Dyngus and it´s Poland’s National Water Fight Day. Back in time boys in the countryside were allowed to drench girls with water and smack them with branches of pussy willow – it was usually meant as a way to show their affection. Today it no longer involves only young boys and girls. It involves anyone and it´s a full-blown national water fight.
In Poland, non-Polish films have a single voice dubbing. Which is mean that one person (called lector) is reading all translation of the script (even if it´s kid or women part), while the original voices are still there.
