    Easter eggs

    by hydronetta Written Jun 26, 2007

    One of the most beautiful Romanian Easter traditions is painted eggs commemorating the Resurrection of Christ.
    This is traditional even for other parts of Eastern Europe like Moldova, Ukraine even Lithuania. It started as a pagan ritual and then Christianity adopted it.
    The shells of eggs are dyed in colourful patterns, with a rich red the prevailing colour. They are often decorated with folk motifs like cross, star, sun, geometrical zigzags, flowers or even motifs using natural leaves (this is a custom in Greece as well).
    Traditionally women paint Easter eggs on the Thursday before Easter.
    Bucovina in particular is a place famous for its Easter eggs. In fact you can even buy them any time of the year from women selling them in their stalls usually outside the painted monasteries. The best and cheapest ones I saw were found outside Humor monastery. The price is around 4-5 RON each (1.3euro) each, but makes a lovely souvenir!!
