The Orthodox Easter

A guide for celebrating the Orthodox Easter holiday with your Russian girlfriend.

For individuals who follow Christianity, the day of the Holy Easter is significant because it represents the triumph of the savior over evil and the triumph of life over death.

On the magnificent Saturday night, also known as the night before the Passover holiday, Russia hosts an annual event that is both large and beautiful. People congregated in churches in anticipation of the parade of crosses through the streets. This procession takes place after the conclusion of the celebration and when the first toll of the Bell is heard; the audience wears white clothing, lights candles, and carries crosses and symbols. The ecclesiastical choir is responsible for disseminating the good news and initiating the processional of crosses all the way around the church.

The common belief states that during the forty days that lie between the celebration of Easter and the feast of the Ascension, Christ walked around with the apostles while wearing humble clothing. They put the generosity of humans to the test by assisting those who are kind while punishing those who are avaricious and wicked. In the past, the Tsars of Russia made official visits to institutions such as orphanages, nursing homes, hospitals, and prisons. During those visits, the Tsars greeted the Christians with the words “Christ is risen!” and presented them with gifts of clothing, food, and money.

During the Easter service, believers will kiss each other three times while greeting one another with the phrases “Christ is risen!” and “yes is risen!” They will also trade Easter eggs with one another.

Blessing the foods that were forbidden to eat during Lent, such as cheese, eggs, and kulichs is another tradition associated with Easter.
Easter is a religious holiday, and many secular traditions have been woven into their celebrations. As a result, the egg represents the cycle of life, which begins at birth and ends with death. A renaissance brought about by the blood of Christ is symbolized by an Easter egg painted red.

Russian peasants put a container with seeds of wheat on the table, buried them inside the container of the Easter egg, and retained the seeds until the time of planting.

If they were going to sow the flax, then they put the eggs in sacks with seeds, and during sowing, they scattered the eggshell over the field. They also washed their face with water from the Easter egg, to be healthy and beautiful.

The sound of the bells, the candles, the beauty of the churches, and church services are the foundation of the Russian people and are present in any Orthodox religious fest.
