Ukrainian Easter

I’ve done this before, but I’ll do it again! Ukrainian Easter (no matter whether you’re Orthodox OR Catholic – like me!) is the week after the Easter you’re thinking of.

But anyway… Ukraine totally owns Easter. They have the most extraordinary hand-painted eggs. After hours of painting with beeswax and dyeing different colours, you then risk shattering the whole thing when you make pin holes in both ends of the eggshell and then blow the contents out.

Over the years I’ve seen some gorgeous eggs ruined at the last moment.
