How do we celebrate Easter? Easter is preceded by Holy Week. It starts on Palm Sunday, when the Christians go to church with small palm branches in memory of Jesus Christ's entering to Jerusalem. On Holy Thursday we take part in the mass, which commemorates Jesus Christ's Last Supper. On Good Friday we celebrate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is very solemn day and we don`t eat meat.
Eggs are the symbol of new life. On Saturday we prepare baskets with coloured eggs, some sausages or ham, some bread and salt and go to church to get the food blessed.
