— Hello, Tanya! Do you celebrate Easter?
— Yes, it is one of my favourite holidays.
— What does it mean for you?
— For me as for many other people it is the time to think about what I have to do to improve myself. And, of course, it is the day of hope for the better future.
— I know that people spend the night before the holiday in church. Is it important?
— Well, it is a tradition. My granny always goes to church; she prays for the whole family and listens to the service.
— Does she take an Easter basket with her?
— Yes, there are Easter eggs and an Easter cake there. Many people also take sugar, salt and ham. The priest blesses all that.
— What does she do in the morning?
— She comes home for breakfast. We lay the table, eat the Easter eggs and the Easter cake and wish each other good health.
— Do Easter eggs symbolize anything?
— They symbolize life. People believe, they can protect them and their houses during the year.
— Thank you for this interesting information. I have learned a lot about this holiday.
— My pleasure!
