Easter Traditions

My fondest Easter tradition in my family was one my Dad would do every Easter by hiding jelly beans all over the house the night before. My sister and I would wake up Easter morning, and before we went to church, would dash around the house to see who could collect the most jelly beans. Dad would love to watch, and we would always miss some. So we would beg him for hints on where they were! Then we would count them all up to see who had the most! I think Dad had more fun than we did! When my kids came along wecarried on the tradition. Now, I’m waiting for the next generation!

Today’s Easter tradition at my house is a well know one! The butter lamb (baranek wielkanocny), also known as a buttered lamb, is a traditional addition to the Easter Meal for many in Western New York. Butter is shaped into a lamb either by hand or in a lamb-shaped mould. The butter lamb is a particular tradition here , in which the annual introduction of the butter lamb is a symbol of spring. Frequently the eyes are represented by peppercorns and a white banner with a red cross on a toothpick is placed on its back. It’s always on my Easter dinner table.
