Perhaps there is no religious holiday more important in Orthodox cultures as Easter or "Paskha", as it is called in Russian. A special bread also named Paskha is baked for this holiday and Easter eggs are painted bright colours in celebration. Traditonally, the people would take these items to their local church on the Eve of Easter to have them blessed.

Easter eggs are very important symbols of course. The Easter egg is a traditional Easter gift presented to all friends and relatives upon meeting. They would be accompanied with the traditional greeting of "Christ is Risen", and in reply "Christ is truly alive".
