  2. 2. Lithuanian Spring traditions EASTER is spring festival. The main attribute of this holiday is Easter Egg (printed, embossed or painted). The most beautiful eggs are those painted with wax, another way of decorating Easter eggs is scraping with a knife. But some people still use natural plant dye. The most popular way to dye eggs in Lithuania is using onion peel.
  3. 3. Lithuanian Spring traditions Lithuanians have very nice Easter traditions and games. On Eastern morning children hunt for hidden Easter eggs left them by the Easter Granny. The Easter Granny travels around the country, stopping in every child's yard to leave eggs. The simplest game is an egg-breaking contest. We do it every year at breakfast table on Easter. Two players face off, each holding an Easter egg and hit each other's egg. The one whose egg remains intact is the winner. To win this you must select the strongest egg! Another amusing Easter game is egg rolling. Contestants roll their eggs and the purpose is to reach the other’s egg and tap it. If your egg hits another egg, you can take it.
  4. 4. Lithuanian Spring traditions Kaziuko mugė (English: Kaziukas Fair) is a large annual Lithuanian folk arts and crafts fair. The fair is traditionally held on the Sunday nearest to St. Casimir’s Day, March 4. Every year Kaziuko mugė announces the beginning of spring and the end of winter. One of the most traditional purchases is the heart shaped cookies called “Kaziuko širdis“ (Heart of Kaziukas). The arts and crafts at the fair include hand-made goods from local craftsmen, such as apparel, knitted clothes, footwear, toys, utensils, metal crafting, souvenirs, and paintings. Traditional “palm” bouquets (called “verbos”, hence Verbų sekmadienis) are one of the fair’s specialties.
