Easter traditions in Romania are unique.
Easter is one of the most important celebrations of Christianity, commemorating the moment when Jesus resurrected. Romanians start preparing for this special day long before the day itself, and Postul Pastelui (Fasting) lasts for 48 days. During this Fasting 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.
