Happy Russian Orthodox Easter!


I came across these Russian chocolate eggs at the store the other day... While we have chicks, eggs and lambs in the USA... Here the eggs feature soldiers in various traditional uniforms... One egg cost 53 rubles, or $1.61. I found quite a few Easter treats at Auchon, the French warehouse-type store.

Aren't those funny! Soldiers of Christ, of course!

That is so weird! I never seen anything like that.
My grandmother use to boil eggs in onion skins ( I still do it every year) and they will come out golden brown. She was always putting me to the task of writing XB (for "Christ is risen" in Russian)on the the ones she will take to the church in the morning. The solders seem hardly appropriate for the trip to the church.
