    Easter Around the World

    Easter in Russia

    In Russia Christians go to church late on Easter Saturday night. At midnight they go out and walk around the outside of the church singing songs. The priest knocks on the door and everyone goes in to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The priest blesses the people's food and they return home to have a happy feast.

    It has been a custom to give friends and family brightly decorated eggs at Easter time, exchanged with the happy saying, "Christ is risen". Over a hundred years ago a jeweler called Faberge began making beautiful Easter eggs out of gold, silver, diamonds and other precious stones.

    They eat lamb, chicken, pork, bread, and Easter cake. Easter Sunday is a happy day of eating and visiting.

    In Russia, pussy willow branches are picked especially for Easter. People tap each other with them for good luck.
