Happy Easter!

Being Ukrainian Catholic, we don’t have our proper Easter until the first of May this year, but here are some pysanky – hand-painted Ukrainian Easter eggs.

Ukrainian Easter

Ukraine does Easter better than anyone (no, I’m not biased!). It’s not much of a deal in most countries anymore, but the intricate designs and all the traditions are important in Ukraine. This year is an unusual year because all the Easters fall on the same day – no matter which calendar a country follows.

Here are some of the many, many Ukrainian Easter eggs (pysanky) for sale on Etsy at the moment.

Monty Python Greeting Card

I’m shopping for a 30th birthday, and I really hate traditional cards with cheesy messages.

I’m considering this Monty Python greeting card instead!
