I spent my Easter vacation away in a small Transylvanian town where I have relatives. I'll call it Village T. It’s technically a small town, but like many around the country, it has shrunk in recent times as many young people left to find work elsewhere.
Nevertheless, the place is beautiful, and celebrating Easter there is special. There are many Easter rituals besides the food (going to church at midnight and on Sunday morning, visiting neighbors, going to the cemetery on the second Easter day – we have three days of Easter – or the following Monday, and so on). There's certainly plenty of material to write about. I also took many photos.
This article is about our traditional Easter foods, since many people wonder about dishes that are served on major holidays around the world. I tried to snap enough pictures for you to get an idea what our Easter meals look like. And by "our" I mean both region-specific (Transylvania) and country-specific (Romania).
