Prior to Easter is the Lenten period of fasting and abstaining from meat and dairy products. We, in Alberta, Canada prepare Easter baskets just like as our relatives in Ukraine filling them with sausage, 
 garlic, salt, smoked meats, butter, cheese, beet horseradish relish, pasky - paska - traditional Easter bread, Babka, pysanky and krashanky - hard boiled eggs dyed in one color. All these foods take on a
  symbolic meaning which refer to the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The baskets are covered with beautifully embroidered linens saying  Khrystos Voskres meaning Christ has risen, to which the reply
is Voiistynu Voskres - He is truly risen.   At the conclusion of the service, rows and rows of food-laden baskets with a lighted candle in each are blessed by the priest.
       The congregation sing a hymn to proclaim that "Christ has risen".
