Yesterday the Serbian Orthodox Church was celebrating Easter. Easter celebrations last five days and are the most important festivity in our country. They started on Thursday when, according to belief, Jesus Christ (Isus Hrist) was convicted. It is followed by Good Friday, when we traditionally fast and colour the eggs (symbol of rebirth and procreation), Good Saturday and, finally, the celebration of Jesus resurrection on Sunday when we break the eggs.
As for colouring and decorating the eggs, the most common way to do it is with plantlets and shucks of red onion.
Do you like how I did it?
“May the joy of Easter holidays fill your homes and bring lasting joy to them, and above all to your hearts, for if joy is in your heart, it will also be in your homes, where we work and live, in every place.”- I found this peaceful message by Serbian Patriarch Irinej yesterday, I thought it was worth mentioning.
I will just say: Cрећан ускрс!!!
