EASTER

April 1, 2018

The Lent that had lasted since Shrove Tuesday would end at Easter, which in Estonian has several other names that stand for “Egg Holiday”, “Resurrection Day”, “Swing Holiday” or “Spring Holiday”. This is when the folk could enjoy food again and rejoice over the awakening of the nature and the Resurrection of Jesus.

This year the Lutheran and Orthodox Easter fall on the same week and at the open air museum you can be a part of the holiday traditions from different backgrounds.
