The traditional Easter practice of pouring water and beating young women is perceived positively by majority of Slovaks, women included. This stems from a survey carried out by the Go4insight research agency, which asked Slovaks how they celebrate the Easter holidays. Primarily, half of the surveyed population perceives Easter mainly as a religious holiday. For one third, Easter is first and foremost a spring holiday with many traditions. For one fifth of the Slovak population, it means free days without a special program. The perception of Easter varies also according to age. Although the religious aspect of Easter is significant in all age groups, it becomes dominant over the age of 50.
