I’m going to Święconka this year! Baaaaahhh!
Before Easter, a Polish family will prepare a special Easter Basket to celebrate the holidays. This basket contains certain iconic food items, such as hard-boiled eggs, kiełbasa, salt and pepper, a butter lamb, bread, and possibly even chocolate… all nicely arranged on top of a doily that lines the wicker basket. Another intricate doily covers the basket while en-route to the Church.
Święconka takes place on Saturday before Easter Sunday… usually around 2 pm. The mass is very short (comparatively to a regular Sunday mass.) The priest will say a few words about the holiday, reading some passages from the Bible. He then proceeds to bless the baskets (all arranged in front of the altar) by sprinkling them with Holy Water.
The basket is taken home after the blessing, and added to the plethora of food and decorations adorning the Easter Sunday dinner table.
Make sure you celebrate the holidays this year, Polish-style!
