easter in romania
Easter In Romania
  • Easter is one of the most important celebrations of Christianity, commemorating the moment when Jesus came back from the dead. Romanians start preparing for this special day long before the day itself, and Easter Lent lasts for 48 days. During this Lenten period we pray and go to church, while some of us give up meat, eggs, or dairy products. It’s a ritual of purification for both the body and soul.

Easter Eggs
  • Romanian decorated eggs make their appearance around Easter, when women paint hollowed-out chicken eggs in various colors. The most common colors for Romanian eggs are red, yellow, and black. These colors also feature heavily in traditional Romanian clothing.

Sacrifice the lamb

Throughout the world the most popular Easter symbol is the lamb. The reference to lamb in Christianity goes back to the book of Genesis, When Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son.

In past centuries it was considered a lucky omen to meet a lamb, especially at Easter time. It was a popular superstition that the devil, who could take the form of all other animals, was never allowed to appear in the shape of a lamb because of its religious symbolism.


Lamb Haggis

A traditional food that is found on many Easter menus in Romania is called Lamb haggis. Lamb-based recipes are popular at this time of the year among Romanians, but while a lamb broil is easier to make, the drob recipe is a bit more complicated.


Matzo (Pasca)

Matzo is an unleavened bread traditionally eaten by Jews during the week-long Passover holiday, when eating chametz—bread and other food made with leavened grain—is forbidden according to Jewish religious law.
