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.

Opal Ring

 Artulia has an opal ring that matches their bangle. It’s not that long to Christmas… right?

Opal Bangle

For whatever reason, I’ve been buying so much opal jewellery while travelling. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, considering how much opal jewellery we have in Australia!

I really like this opal bangle by Artulia.

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!

Ukrainian Easter

Tomorrow is Ukrainian Easter (for all Christians – not just Orthodox people!), and one of the most famous symbols of Ukrainian culture are pysanky – intricately-decorated Easter eggs.

You can buy pysanky on Etsy, but I doubt they’d make it past Australia’s strict customs department!
