The Czech Easter

As many other Christian traditions, even Easter is closely connected with previous Pagan traditions. Therefore, the origin of some customs is not clear or is somehow linked to both roots. Nevertheless, nowadays we are thinking about Easter more like it is a Christian tradition and even the name for Easter in Czech language “Velikonoce” comes from velká (English: Great) and the word noc (English: Night). So, the celebration of the great night when Jesus Christ was risen.
