Easter in Poland is a church holiday, celebrating the Paschal mystery. For others, it is also a springtime relaxation. The holiday is full of traditions and folk customs, which, depending on the region, have their color and patterned counterparts. We decorate houses using symbols, we cultivate old customs. The most popular ones are: making palm trees, painting Easter eggs, preparing an Easter basket, or pouring water in Śmigus Dyngusa.
Painting Easter eggs comes from old Slavic beliefs, where the egg was a symbol of vitality and new life. It mediated between the human world and gods and spirits. The given color mattered. Blue Easter eggs were given to bachelors who were “exposed” that they were dating different girls. In turn, the blue color of the egg is obtained from a decoction of fermented oak wood (fresh) with iron filings.
