The tradition of celebrating Easter is strongly associated with the ancient spring festivals and is quite rich. Easter is also the largest and oldest church holiday, consisting of an extensive series of rites and customs with a specific scenario from the life of Christ or his death.
For Catholics, it is the feast of all feasts. Many ancient folk beliefs are associated with it; the ancient fire cults of the pre-Christian rites of spring are interwoven with Christian accessories, and ancient beliefs, fertility cults with the cult of the dead.
Easter is celebrated in early spring, after a 40-day fast followed by a feast.
The week between Palm Sunday and Easter is a big week that is all about preparing for Easter. During this time, clothes, the house, and the environment must be cleaned.
Good Friday is a day of strict fasting. It is also the only day of the year when there is no Mass in church and the organ is silent.
Saturday is a day of food blessing, baptismal water and bonfire. In parish churches and chapels, Easter foods are brought for blessing or consecration, usually prepared by housewives the day before.
Easter Sunday is above all a great family feast, a day of festive gathering when people stay at home. After the morning Mass, the whole family gathers for the blessing of the Easter breakfast.
Since all Easter dishes symbolize a holiday, light a candle to symbolize warmth. Regardless of your religion, we wish you to spend beautiful moments with your family.
