Easter time in Poland

Next weekend is going to be all about Easter. If you are going to spend this time in Poland check what’s going to happen and how you should prepare yourself for the traditional holiday time in Poland.

Easter Saturday – It is probably one of the most enduring and beloved by Polish people traditions. How does it work? You prepare a basket filled with Easter traditional food that will be eaten during the Easter feast and then take it to church for blessing. Of course, you won’t spot people bringing tables full of many traditional dishes right to the front of the church instead, a small amount of the most important food like eggs, bread, meat and butter are put inside the basket. It’s a very important tradition in Polish culture so you can often spot entire families participating in it.


Holy Sunday – Sunday morning means the big, traditional, family breakfast. It starts with sharing of the blessed eggs between family members and wishing each other and themselves all the best. The breakfast is dominated by cold dishes and is a feast for meat lovers: ham, sausage, roast meats, pâté (pasztet), eggs, horseradish relish, bread. Easter breakfast is so decadent that it has to be considered a day-off from the Spring diet.

Easter Monday – This special day is a family holiday in Poland and is called a Smingus-Dyngus, or Wet Monday, after the practice of men and boys pouring water on women and girls. Now the real fun begins – if you’re a girl you better read these words carefully, as it is usually girls who end up being the victims of water guns and buckets:)
