Palm Saturday Tradition in Poland

Easter Saturday in Poland is a busy day. Every Polish family visits a church with a basket full of food products (a piece of bread, salt, sausage, egg - usually painted etc). Especially children love it! The baskets are then blessed by a priest. Read more about Easter Food Blessing - an ancient Polish custom.

Another important ceremony on Easter Saturday are visitats through the churches to see Jesus Tombs. Every church has a uniquely decorated empty tomb. Below is the account from Jerzy of food blessing ceremony in Krakow.

We went to the church carrying a basket full of food and coloured eggs and ornamented with pussy willows and anything else which is already growing green.
