Easter is one of the major springtime holidays and it lasts for three days. On Holy Thursday the eggs are painted; the first egg to be painted is always red in color. That egg is put before the icon in the house. During the night of the first day of Easter everyone goes to the special church service.
Afterwards churchgoers “fight” with their painted eggs, each tapping his/her egg against the eggs of others. It is believed that the person whose egg does not crack will enjoy good health all through the year.
