It is Easter in Russia: May 5th, 2013…

It is Sunday – May 5th, 2013. It is also Easter in Russia, Orthodox Easter to be exact. Today you will not find Easter Bunnies or baskets of grass full of candy, but you will find that yesterday, people were at the churches getting bread and eggs blessed for Easter. Eggs are blessed and then painted brilliant colors and bread is blessed before they eat it…

Graves are visited during this holiday and small villages are full of kids, dogs and adults, so driving through a small village is done with caution at this time of the year. It is Spring and Easter and everyone is out and about…
