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 Śmigusa 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. A green-colored Easter egg was given to boys who were still in primary school and kindergarten, so-called “Szkalcom”. The green color is obtained from the decoction of young barley or wheat shoots.
