    Easter Around the World

    Easter in Czechoslovakia

    Easter in Czechoslovakia is called Velikonoce and is an important festival with many customs, some of which date back to pre-christian times.

    In Czechoslovakia they are famous for their beautifully decorated Easter eggs, which are done using the batik method.

    In Czechoslovakia at Easter they eat a wonderful coffee bread called Babovka.

    A special food eaten at Easter is Mazanec, which is a yeast-raised cake filled with almonds, raisins and citron. A cross is cut into the top of the cake just before it goes into the oven.

    They celebrate both Easter Monday as well as Easter Sunday. The traditional name for Easter Monday is Whipping Monday, because on this day the village boys used to playfully threaten the girls with switches. In modern times, Easter Monday is a day for open house, when anybody and everybody is likely to drop in. Greetings are exchanged and fruits and cakes are served. It is traditional to serve guests small glasses of plum brandy.
