Wet Monday - A religious tradition?

In central Europe there is a bit of a strange tradition, supposedly linked to religion. Two days into Easter, is Wet Monday, where guys soak women in water. The tradition initially celebrated the Spring, symbolising cleansing. Then, when Christianity became more dominant, the tradition meant cleansing the soul of sins.

Would you absolutely hate or love this day if you lived there?
