A few words about Easter Catholic Church usually celebrates Easter in April. It is the springtime Christian festival, a very specific period of time for all the believers. At Easter we celebrate Christ’s Resurrection, and His victory over death and sin. Easter egg is a symbol of a new life. On Easter Sunday we meet our relatives for a festive breakfast. Kids get the sweets Easter Bunny had left them, and sometimes look for chocolate eggs hidden in the house. People wish one another “Happy Easter” (“Wesołego Alleluja” in Poland) and have an occasion to talk together, too. Easter Monday is celebrated by the Poles only. That day everyone can expect to be drenched with water, at least once. Generally speaking, Easter is a time of happiness and rebirth.

These colourful eggs are called "pisanki" or "kraszonki". To the basket we put also some bread, meat or a sausage, some sweats and salt. Easter eggs are a symbol of the new life.
