Easter is almost here! And to celebrate, you can find our newest edition (Spring Edition 2023) Ebook FREE tomorrow on Amazon in celebration of Good Friday. How do you celebrate Easter? Some dye eggs, some prepare baskets of presents, and some (like my ancestors) bake Serbian Easter Bread.
It is true that I am only part Serbian (technically Serbs of Croatia) as with many of those who were born in the USA, but this particular portion was enough to have some traditions passed down through the family. If you were to search for "Serbian Easter Bread", you would find all sorts of different shapes and symbols, but I am only qualified to talk about the one that was passed down to me. This particular loaf is a tri-braided circle with three red eggs tucked into the braid to form the points of a triangle. (There will be no making fun of my loaf...I had to make it dairy-free and that causes it to spread.) The red eggs represent the members of the Trinity and the color represents the sacrifice of Jesus. The round shape represents the unending existence of God. No matter how you celebrate Easter this year I implore you to remember the words of this silly kid's rhyme:
It's not about the bunny.
It's not about the eggs.
Easter is about the God who saves.
