    In Romania the Christian Church says that Jesus was born during the winter solstice and his death followed by his resurrection happened during the spring equinox, the Easter - the greatest of the Romanian spring holidays!
The hearts of the Romanian people are full of hope and joy while looking forward to this celebration!

The Orthodox Easter in Romania – during the Easter night, the people go to church and light candles that they take home to bless their families.

The tradition of giving eggs, Easter cake and sponge cake is very old. The eggs are a symbol of the universe beeing a generator of life.

The romanian people paint their Easter eggs red and then they decorate them with different patterns, transforming this tradition into a artistic and and refined skill. People say that the shells of the Easter eggs brings you beauty and health.
