My Easter Traditions

My favorite holiday starts tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier! ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember when we used to clean the whole house from top to bottom before this holiday had come at my family home. We also used to draw the patterns on the eggs with wax and then dye them. They’re called pysanky. Since I was the youngest, I was the worst at it. My mom and dad, though, are a pro. We keep their eggs from years before and they were doing a fantastic job.

Easter Food

As far as I am concerned, Easter Sunday breakfast is the most important. I will, for sure, make lots of different eggs. Boiled eggs, cut in half with mayonnaise and some garden cress on top (they’re my favorite). Eggs stuffed with some tuna and my (other favorite and V’s) vegetable salad with, again, garden cress on top.

What We’re Watching

On Friday, V and I always watch the movie “The Passion of the Christ” just to remember what Good Friday is all about.

I also really like watching all the other religious movies or series. When I lived in Poland, such movies were being shown on TV around this time. Back then, the TV was just on and it was playing while we were cleaning, cooking and preparing for Easter Sunday.

From My Heart To Yours

I would like you to feel the hope of new beginnings, love and happiness during this joyful Easter holiday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Easter! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Breakfast is the most important to us too on Easter Day! I always set a nice table with pretty table linens ( some embroidered by my mom many years ago!) and everybody gets an Easter basket with some goodies. We of course also have to do an Easter egg hunt….most years we find eggs for months afterwards! It’s all about family on this day for us…hanging out together and enjoying each others company…and of course eating a bit of chocolate ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Happy Easter to you and yours!

  2. Easter is a wonderfully joyous holiday, as it usually is coincident with life – finally! – returning. Spring’s enthusiasm is highly contagious!

    The pysanky are stunning. How long would it take an expert, such as one of your parents, to create one? Given their supreme intricacy, it’d have to take years, even decades, right?

    Then, at the other extreme, is me. I suppose I can manage dyeing eggs a single color. Maybe. If I really try. “There – pastel purple. That’s it for me, one egg. I’m finished!”

  3. Growing up, we went to church on Easter and had food with family during the entire day. Before Easter, cleaning, and cooking for the day as well as baking and dying eggs. As an adult, I still have not established any traditions.

  4. Sounds like you have some great traditions. I live alone and have no family, so traditions are really not on the menu for me. I go to church every Sunday so to attend on Easter is no different. But I think it is good to create traditions for people with families or hoping to start a family. Traditions draw people together and have particular meaning to each family. Have a joyful Easter, Ula. God bless.

  5. I have a Russian friend that painted eggs every year. I have many that I cherish, Even a large Ostrich Egg. It is not easy to decorate as there is a film that will not hold the die. You have such Youthfulness that you seem to remain a little girl. Stay young.

  6. Nice post. Traditions are great, they make you feel safe because of consistency. Our favorite movie to watch is Ben Hur (1955 version) God is always good, and the resurrection is great.
