Polish Easter & Lent Customs and Traditions

Easter dishes star
The time when the Christians celebrate Resurrection of Jesus, announces also the end of the Lent, when eating many dishes is forbidden. Therefore the days of Easter are also the days when Polish tables are covered with delicious meals and various pastries.

Easter tradition in Poland star
Poland is known as a Catholic country, therefore Easter is a bank holiday that most of the Poles celebrate. It differs a lot from Christmas, however, it is also the time spent with family. Holy Week brings a lot of reflection but also hope for revival.

Fat Thursday feast star
The feast of Fat Thursday is celebrated shortly before the Lent. On that day citizens of Poland (as well as Catholic parts of Germany) consume great amounts of sweets. Among the most popular specialties are ‘paczki’ and ‘faworki’.

Pisanka, Easter Egg star
During Easter Holidays all the Poles attend the church to get their food blessed by the priest. The basket, full of food, cannot lack in eggs (symbol of new life). To show the joy of Easter, the Poles embellish Easter eggs in many ways, depending on the region they live in.

The article describes main traditions and customs that are cultivated during Easter in homes of the Polish people. Get to know how the Poles spend Wielkanoc (Easter) – the most important period of Christian tradition.

Tradition of building Ways of the Cross star
During Easter Holidays the Poles celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To give themselves to meditation they visit churches and take part in Passion Plays to go through the final hours of Jesus. They build special chapels that remind of the last events in life of Christ.
