A celebration of Easter in the Orthodox Church
Pascha! A night of light, a night of joy and, sometimes, a night of hungry, sleepy, grouchy children. Check out these tips for making Pascha night easier for your children, and for you.
What do Easter baskets full of candy have to do with Pascha baskets full of food? Where did the basket tradition come from anyway? And, if you’re packing a Pascha basket to take to church, what do you put in it?
Fun and educational activities and crafts. Make a traditional glass icon. Decorate Pascha eggs to hang on your Christmas tree. Make a Pascha basket cover. Learn about pysanky eggs. Practice literary analysis. The projects are all free, so enjoy!
We have recipes! We have recipes for traditional Pascha foods like Easter lamb soup and paska bread. We have recipes for less traditional Pascha foods like honey bunnies and cheese and sausage balls. And we have a recipe for the decidedly non-traditional, absolutely delightful Pascha treat called Peeps in marshmallow nests.
