Easter Traditions

I did not grow up with chocolate eggs. Easter in communist Poland was a mixture of Christian traditions (to defy the government) and springtime celebrations (including spring cleaning).

Often, the Easter symbols had two meanings: religious and seasonal. A lamb figurine made of sugar, for example, signified Christ as well as new life at springtime.

As always, food was the soul and the centre of Easter.

What are your Easter traditions?
