Easter holiday is the most significant event of the Christian celebration. After 40 days of Lent comes the Easter holiday. It begins with Palm Sunday. On Good Friday people are supposed not to eat meat. On Easter Saturday we go to church to bless eggs and other food, which are earlier papered and put in a colorful basket. Eggs are painted and decorated with different patterns. These colorful 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. On Easter Saturday people visit also the tomb of Jesus Christ. Tradition says that the tomb must be looked after young boys or men the whole night before the Easter Sunday.
