Decorated eggs

One of the most beautiful Polish folk tradition of Easter is hand painting or decorating of boiled eggs. Polish pisanka (plural pisanki) or kraszanki (from a krasić – which means to decorate) is a common name for an egg ornamented using various techniques. One of our parishioners brought to the rectory a few decorated eggs she made herself. She boiled eggs in onion peels to get the rich brown color and then decorated them herself by scratching the surface with a sharp tool to reveal the white of the egg shell. In our photo gallery we present some of them. By the way, we thank Mrs. B for the beautiful gift of pisanki.
