Did you know that a Croatian tradition is coloring eggs for Easter time and exchanging them as a gift?
Easter is the most important and oldest holiday of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Christ and held on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox.
Usually, it is the weekend from Good Friday to Easter Monday.
The naming of the celebration as “Easter” seems to go back to the name of a pre-Christian goddess in England, Eostre, who was celebrated at the beginning of spring. The only reference to this goddess comes from the writings of the Venerable Bede, a British monk who lived in the late seventh and early eighth century.
