Easter coming



Easter coming! As a matter of fact we had much different time this time in the past. People used to burn old crucifixes to get some kind of medicine for ulcers. There was also no Easter basket until 1945 but Masurians had holly water and fire for Easter. And this for whole three days. On Easter Sunday people used to wash themselves in a water flowing towards eastern parts of our world, to be healthy all year long. Easter Sunday was a family time. Easter breakfast was very light. No meat, no fries. The most favourite meal was cake with cottage cheese. It was called: “Kuch”. Very tasty, enjoy!
