Ukrainian Girl with Easter Eggs

Easter is the biggest holiday for Orthodox Christians. Besides being a church celebration, it’s a celebration of spring and awakening of nature after a long Russian winter.

Orthodox Easter and Catholic Easter are celebrated on different days, due to following different calendars. Western Christianity is using the Gregorian calendar, and Eastern Christianity (like in Russia and Ukraine) bases the day of the holiday on the Julian calendar. However, Easter is always celebrated on Sunday in every Christian denomination.

This year the Orthodox Easter is celebrated on the 5th of May, and the preparations for the holiday have started some time ago all over Russia and Ukraine.

Some cities offer to visit numerous Easter fairs that will help you to grasp the richness of this cultural event and to buy presents and hand-made souvenirs. Many Russian women attend these fairs to buy traditional Easter supplies, and to enjoy the spirit of the holiday and spring.

From the 3rd to the 5th of May you can visit such a fair in Kiev, at the gallery M17. There you’ll get a chance to make your own hand-made Easter basket, learn to paint pisanki – Easter eggs, and to bake a kulich – traditional sweet Easter bread.

And on the 5th of May a concert will be held, performed by talented Ukrainian girls and boys.

Happy Easter!

Tasty Easter Treats in Russia – (SecureDating.com)

Paska or Kulich is a traditional bread that is baked by Russian and Ukrainian women for Easter.

Easter is coming to Russia this upcoming weekend and many people are expecting this celebration of spring with joy in their hearts and tummies.

Easter is probably the most expected celebration for Christians in Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus. The reason for this is because Easter is preceded by lent, the longest and hardest fasting period that lasts over a months when people deny themselves an opportunity to partake in the culinary fiesta that is Russian cuisine. While Russian restaurants long since have learned to get around these lent restrictions by serving delicious food that is still acceptable from the religious point of view, a true Russian soul cannot live without pelmeni, borsch and vodka and these products are strictly forbidden. The Easter weekend marks the end of lent and the beginning of the feast.

While different families serve different kinds of food during this weekend, there are dishes that transverse all countries that practice Orthodox Christianity – boiled eggs and Easter Kulich. The eggs are decorated, they are either painted with one color – in this case, they are called “krashenki”, or intricate pictures are painted on them. The painted versions are called “pisanki” and the are of painting them has been developed to near perfection by Ukrainian women. In rural areas of Ukraine, many Ukrainian families have their own traditional ways to paint pisanki and it is customary to gift all friends and relatives with these home made pieces of art.

Pisanki are hand-painted eggs that are made by Russian and Ukrainian women for Easter.

Kulich, also known as “Paska”, is a sweet pie that is is covered in glaze. It is a very sweet treat, so it is adored by children. You can buy a kulich at the store, however if you want to learn what kulich is all about, you have to get your hands on one baked by a Ukrainian hostess. Kuliches from bakeries will never amount to the sweetness and softness of a home-made Paska.

Home-made wine is a traditional drink for Easter. Sadly, not everyone can purchase home made wines, so it is replaced with regular wine in large cities.

Russian Fast Food – Dining on the Run in Moscow – (SecureDating.com)

Fast food for a fast paced world. The financial crisis is changing the menu of Russian diners. Many casual and fine diners have cut their dining budgets, but still haven’t turned away from eating out. There are currently about a dozen large fast-food chains in Russia and analysts say there’s still a lot of room for growth.

“The market is still underdeveloped compared to the US. In Russia, the overall food retail turn-over is less than 5%, in the US it makes up to 40%, it’s huge money”.

Most fast food outlets are concentrated in big cities, but these markets will still be closed to saturation. In order to attract more customers, fast food chains have to expand into the regions. Opening road-side diners is also a way to develop. Right now, Russian highways are filled with independent stand-alone establishments.

Apart from offering burgers and sandwiches that are available all over the world, some of the Russian fast-food outlets offer local flavors, such as pirogi or pelmeni.

If you are dating hot Russian girls, taking them to dinner to a fast-food establishment may not be such a good idea. Most of Russian women watch their diet very carefully and they would prefer a home cooked meal or dining out in a good restaurant. Make sure to inquire about her personal taste before you take her somewhere, especially if you are planning a visit to a restaurant that serves food that may be considered exotic for Russia, such as Indian or Chinese.
