My first Easter in Lithuania was eventful. I enjoyed the many designs on the eggs that are so different from what I grew up with. On Friday I went to the carrying of the cross from Christ the King, through old town to Mary Queen of Peace. The crowd was so large that buses couldn’t get through for a while. We stopped 14 times for each of the Stations of the Cross. Click here to see images.
On Saturday, I went to the old market and bought my 12th pair of wool socks and a few of the eggs.
Sunday was a big celebration. In the afternoon we walked through the forest to the seacoast at Melnrage. Many people were searching from amber along shoreline. Click here to see more.
On Monday, a holiday here, I went with a group to Rumšiškės, an ethnographic museum. There was dancing, music and a variety of egg games. Click on the image to see more.
