5 dishes you must have on Easter Sunday
Easter is one of the most important holidays for people belonging to the Christian community. The holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday after the Easter full moon. This year, the Easter full moon was March 28 and Easter April 4. According to the Holy Bible, Jesus Christ was crucified on the day of Good Friday. He was buried in a grave after his last supper which is commemorated as Maundy Thursday.
On the third day, when his disciples and disciples visited his grave, they saw that it was empty. It is believed that on that day Christ had triumphed over death. Many people call him “Son of God” for this very reason. This day of Christ’s resurrection is marked as Easter. People celebrate this day with joy and enthusiasm. Food is a very important part of the Easter celebration.
Here’s a look at five must-haves of the godly occasion:
Easter eggs: Initially, people painted normal chicken eggs in different colors, but nowadays the majority of people wrap chocolate eggs in colored foil. Easter eggs are believed to represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and his resurrection.
Hot cross buns: This is a spicy sweet bun mainly made of fruit, marked with a cross on the top. The cross on the bun symbolizes the cross on which Christ was crucified and the spices used in the buns are believed to be those that were used for embalming after his death.
Easter Bunny Currant Cookies: These cookies are usually made from butter, egg yolk, sugar, flour, and baking powder. Lightly spiced redcurrant cookies are a traditional Easter dish. Believers put cassia oil in this cookie because they believed that this ingredient was used in the process of embalming the body of Christ after his crucification.
Easter Bunny Cupcakes: The Easter Bunny is a folk figure and a symbol of Easter. It was believed that the Easter Bunny would be a judge of children’s good and bad behavior during the Easter season. Nowadays, people make an Easter bunny with fondant or chocolate and decorate cupcakes with it to give it an Easter theme.
Easter bread: It is basically a sweet bread called pinca. This bread is enriched with butter and eggs and is extremely soft. The loaf of this bread is round in shape and decorated with symbols in the shape of a cross. Some people also braid the bread so that it looks like a crown.
