And so this week, the homestead will be filled with the lovely aroma of the Paska ( Pascha ) bread.
The Easter Bread- a sweet yeast bread rich in eggs, butter, etc. Symbolic of Christ himself who is our true bread. Usually a round loaft baked with a golden crust and decorated with a symbol of Christ. Sometimes a a cross made out of dough is placed on top.
( I also add golden raisons )
Embrace your traditions and teach them to your children.
The Bread is placed in a basket, and covered with a beautiful embroidered cloth made by my
MIL, taken to Church and blessed, along with the other food to be prepared, on Holy Saturday.
