Easter greetings from Finland!

Palm Sunday (10.4.) marks the beginning of planning and preparing for Easter in Finland. First chocolate Easter eggs are given to children in exchange for their decorated pussy willow branches.

This year you might get a Fazer Mignon chocolate egg too. We will add one as a gift for each order for dishes from Astialiisa Online for one week before Easter, 8.4.-14.4.

Painting eggs is one of the traditions of Easter time. Egg shells filled with delicious chocolate have become very popular for this Easter fun.

Easter (15-18.4) is the most important celebration of spring. Families gather together to celebrate the holidays and homes are decorated with yellow spring flowers. Finnish Easter specialties include decorations like bunnies (see the popular Arabia Bunny mugs) and easter chicks, as well as painting eggs and growing baby ryegrass in a bowl. These traditions all symbolise new life. Would you like to check our selection of vintage egg cups?
