EASTER (21 / 22.04) – this is a special time and the most important religious holiday in Poland. It begins with a HOLY WEEK (18 – 20/04) – from MAUNDY THURSDAY, through GOOD FRIDAY, it ends with a HOLY SATURDAY, when Christians celebrate food ceremoniously. People bring ‘święconka’, or baskets, to the church to be blessed, in which there are: hams, sausages, cakes, bread and ‘PISANKI’, or painted eggs.
EASTER SUNDAY (21/04) – On this morning, families sit together at the Easter table. Before meals, they share an egg whilst giving best wishes.
EASTER MONDAY (22/04) – this is the second day of Easter, which is associated with fun and … water! From the early hours of the morning, boys go pouring buckets of water over girls. Do not be surprised when, on this day, you will be accidentally covered with water on the street!
