Although the Kashubian culture also goes back for centuries, it is less distinct from Polish culture than the Kashubian language is from the Polish language. The language was used every hour in everyday life, while the art forms and major events of Kashubian life were obviously affected by living side by side with Germans, Poles, and even Scandinavians. However, the Kashubian History and Culture Project at geni.com offers general information on Kashubian embroidery, also known as "Haft Kaszubski," and on several Kashubian folk dances. Although the type of paper cutting called "wycinanki" is not a purely Kashubian art form (it is also practiced in Poland and Ukraine), some beautiful examples of Kashubian wycinanki can be found at Kaszubwinona.com. The Kashubian American artist and translator of Kashubian literature, Blanche Krbechek, is also well known in Kashubia for her wycinanki.
A custom common to Kashubians, Poles, Hungarians, and Ukrainians is the Easter Monday observance of Dyngus. Boys throw water over girls and "spank" them with pussy willows, demanding to be given two eggs. The girls return the favor to the boys the next day. This practice was observed for generations by Kashubian Americans in Winona and Pine Creek. Kashubians also observed the traditional Polish Easter and Christmas customs, as wonderfully described by the scholar of Polish American material culture, Ann Hetzel Gunkel.
