How we celebrate Easter

Christ is Risen!

We usually celebrate each Easter with red dyed eggs, pascha- a traditional tart made in Eastern Orthodox countries, and sweet bread.

Each year I am trying something new…

This year: the Italian almond paste Easter lamb, the one of Favara, the belgian Craquelin, brioche Easter bunnies…

During the Easter festivities, in Puglia, almond paste takes the shape of lambs, a tradition that derives from Christian religion.

The use of the lamb as a paschal symbol is particularly widespread in the south of Italy. The most famous is that of Favara, in the province of Agrigento, Sicily, with its pistachio paste heart.

    Cate bunatati ai pus pe masa, Paula! Cat ai muncit, fata draga! Nu ma apuc sa insir ca-mi place aia si ailalta, pentru ca imi place TOT!
    Felicitari, toata stima si respectul :)), esti super brava! Ferice de cei care s-au asezat la masa ta.
    Eu am avut cate ceva in plan, dar nu am facut nimic pana la urma, am lasat pe altii sa faca de data asta :).

    • Adevarat a Inviat!
      De fiecare data trag nadejde ca cei ce se aseaza la masa la noi se simt “ca acasa”.
      Iti multumesc mult pentru aprecieri. :*
      Te imbratisez cu drag, :*

      P.S.: Eu as fi tare curioasa sa vad nimicul ala facut de tine… 😛

  2. Nimic Paula, pe cuvant ca nu am facut nimic. Mi-au lipsit ouale rosii si cozonacul, dar na, daca nu am binevoit sa fac, o sa fac de Inaltare.
