Easter 2019

Paşte fericit! Happy Easter! Sunday April 30th was Easter Sunday for Orthodox Christians. For the weeks follwoiung this, I greeted people in my village with Hristos a înviat! (Christ has risen,) or responded with Adevărat a înviat! (He truly has risen). My host mother and I went to church around 3 am Sunday morning and then returned home. Luckily for me, our masa (celebration meal) was delayed until 10 am so I got to sleep a little more.  Easter Sunday consists of multiple meals at your family and friends homes and extends for three days.  A tradition at the meal is for two people to smash eggs end to end to see whose egg doesn’t break, that person is going to have a long life.  Photos from church and two of the celebration meals that I attended.
