Easter is the biggest holiday of Christianity. In its celebration, many folk traditions have preserved from pre-Christian times. Such is the fertility symbol of the new life born in spring, the Easter egg. In the Hungarian-speaking regions, during the Holy Week before Easter, girls and women decorate eggs, which they present to the boys who sprinkle them on Easter Monday.

Students from Hungarian Language and Cultural Studies and Literary Translation Programme could take part in the Hungarian tradition of Easter preparations. In the last two weeks of March, 33 enthusiastic students learned about and practiced making Easter eggs written with beeswax. During the fun sessions, they could learn about other egg dyeing processes.
