A collection of great Easter Greetings Postcards

Hello my friends!

Easter is still an important Christian festival for Portuguese people. In the north is taken very seriously. Nocturnal, silent, candle processions are held at specific religious towns like Braga. Braga, has been a diocese since the 3rd century and religion continues to play a dominant role at the community. The procession that features the Farricocos - barefooted men dressed in purple tunics tightened at the waist, hooded and carrying torches,- is quite impressive. 

Good Friday is the bank holiday and people do not eat meet. When I was a child this is what I remember: the houses would get spring cleaned for Easter Sunday. On Easter Sunday, after lunch,- roast goat/lamb is the traditional dish - the local priest would visit my parent’s house with the cross for us to kiss. The priest helper would carry a bell and I remember hearing it on the streets. Streets were decorated with high cross draped on purple cloths. Some houses had cloths hanging from the balconies. My mother would set out a table with cakes, sugared white and pink almonds and a bottle of Port wine to offer the visitors. The traditional Easter cake is called a "folar" which is a yeasty mix with whole boiled eggs, including the shell, in the middle. My godmother in baptism gave me gifts and sent me a postcard with rabbits. I still keep it!

In this post I gathered a few great Zazzle Easter Greeting Cards. Hope you enjoy my sellection!

  6. I love all the Easter cards! Great time to find two of my favorite things, bunnies and chicks. Thank you so very much for including two of mine :)
    Also very interesting blog - Easter was always celebrated in a very serious fashion in my home, starting with Lent, then Good Friday, (most schools are still closed on this day) and then Easter. Fortunately for me the Easter bunny did come to call, and still does :))))
