Easter Day – one of the most important national public holidays in Poland

March 5th, 2015

FindYourStampsValue.com is glad to inform that Polish Post is to release two stamps to honor the Easter holiday. The stamps, depicting Easter eggs, will be issued and put into circulation on the 6th of March.

Easter Sunday (Wielkanoc) is a festive Christian holiday in Poland that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is also a national public holiday.

Many people paint Easter eggs (pisanki), which are then taken to be blessed at churches that hold special services on Easter Day. Homes come alive with family breakfasts to celebrate Easter Sunday in Poland.

The table is usually laid out with Easter eggs, spring flowers, an "Easter lamb" made of cake or sugar, and meals such as sausages, boiled eggs, horseradish soup, and bacon. Emaus is a local tradition in Krakow, where people set up stalls with trinkets, toys and sweets. The following day, Easter Monday, is also a public holiday in Poland.
