Thanks for sharing Ewa. It was very interesting for me considering that I am part Polish also. But I am not familiar with any cultural traditions.

Thanks for that nice vid Ewa, I saw colorful easter eggs on net somewhere. As one of the best-known Easter symbols is the egg, which has symbolized renewed life since ancient days. The egg is said to be a symbol of life because in all living creatures life begins in the egg. The Persians and Egyptians also colored eggs and ate them during their new year's celebration, which came in the spring.
Today many people still color Easter eggs and decorate them with fancy patterns and symbols. The sun symbolizes good fortune; the rooster, fulfillment of wishes; the deer, good health; the flowers, love and charity.
