Easter and spring in Estonia
Although Easter is one of the most important Christian holidays, its traditions are blended with age-old folk beliefs and customs. The literal translation of Easter in Estonian, lihavõtted, is „meat-taking holidays“, hinting to the preceding forty-day Lent. In popular usage Easter is also called egg holidays, spring holidays and swing holidays.
