In Poland the Eve of Easter Sunday is the time of joyful anticipation. That day believers go to church to attend the ritual of the blessing of the foods prepared for Easter breakfast. We carry it in special wicker baskets. Among the necessary goodies in the Easter basket are Easter eggs (a symbol of new life), lamb made of sugar or dough, which symbolises the martyred Christ. We add also a slice of specially prepared ham and sausage, a pinch of salt and a slice of bread. Children usually add chocolate bunny.
