When the eggs are ready we prepare Święconka – a basket in which there are all traditional Polish dishes: pisanki, white sausage, a piece of bread, a bit of butter, spices, and a white lamb a symbol of Easter in Poland.
We go to the church on Saturday morning and a priest blesses the food, which will be eaten on Easter Sunday morning for breakfast. Traditional dishes prepared for Easter breakfast are: white sausage, white borscht, ham and salads, and Easter buns.
Easter Monday Easter Monday or Wet Monday is called Lany Poniedziałek in Polish. This is a favourite day of Easter of all boys, because we pour water on our family and friends. In the past boys not only poured water on pretty girls but also hit them with a twig. The most popular and beautiful girls are always wet the most.
