Easter – is a big religious holiday, because Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The date of celebrating changes every year. It falls on one of spring Sundays. Seven weeks before Easter – it is the Lent. People must not eat the animal products and meal 7 weeks.
People prepare for the celebration during the last week, which we name Holy Week. Of course, the customs related with this day are different in every country.

It’s really an important day for many Christians, because Jesus Christ was crucified on this day. Jesus’ sacrifice was made for us. It’s a day when people say the prayers of thanksgiving and sing solemn hymns.
On Saturday women dye the eggs. Red color is traditional color of eggs, but this tradition changed a little bit. Nowadays we can see on the Easter table the eggs of different colors. In the Saturday evening, Christian people go to church. The Easter mass lasts all night. The priest consecrates the food in the morning. People go home for breakfast after the ceremony. The first food that they eat is the blessed food. It is the time, when relatives visit each other.
