Boys in folk customs carry a giant "pomlazka" (plated willow stems) to whip girls during traditional celebration of Easter Monday in Nemcicky, South Moravia, on Monday, April 9, 2012. The tradition of whipping girls and women with plaited willow stems and splashing them with cold water should assure womankind with good health, fresh look and keep fertility. The girls then give coloured or painted eggs to boys and men as a sign of their thanks and forgiveness. (CTK Photo/Vaclav Salek)
