The three most important days are: Maundy Thursday (Великий четверг) Good Friday (Страстная пятница) Easter Sunday (Пасхальное воскресенье)
On Maundy Thursday the king or a queen of England gives money to poor people. The tradition is very old.
On Good Friday people eat fish instead of meat. They also eat special hot cakes with a cross on the top. They call these cakes hot cross buns.
On Easter Sunday people eat a traditional roast dinner with lamb, potatoes and vegetables. They also give each other chocolate Easter eggs.
Children like Easter very much because it is a tasty holiday. All the families colour eggs and put them into green, yellow and pink baskets. Next morning children are busy with hunting eggs and chocolate bunnies. They play funny games and sing Easter songs.
