Easter tradition
« on: February 23, 2011, 06:37:08 PM »
The translation to church of the bread called "pasti" (pashti) (lit. 'pascha'), on the great Thursday. This bread should presumably be blessed and used at St. Basil's liturgy on the Great Saturday and then, sprinkled/soaked with wine is distributed to all people on Easter night, after matins or matins and liturgy.
Many villages  in Transylvania attach great importance to this bread and have developed these customs associated with it.

Beaucoup de ces dieux ont péri
C'est sur eux que pleurent les saules
Le grand Pan l'amour Jésus-Christ
Sont bien morts et les chats miaulent...
