Two things about the days after Orthodox Easter. First, nobody is eating much. Everyone says they have burta plena -- full bellies -- from all the feasting over the long weekend. Orthodox Easter is both a family holiday and a food holiday; great masses of food are cooked, and it's bad manners not to eat. As a result, after the weekend everyone is indopat -- stuffed. Second, there's a cool little tradition involving eggs.
Romanians make colored eggs for Easter, just as Americans and Germans do. But when they eat them, there's a little ritual they go through. Two people face each other, holding eggs. One says "Christ is risen!" The other replies, "Truly, he is risen!" Then they tap the eggs together until one breaks. This is usually done in a group, with people sort of competing. The person whose egg breaks last is supposed to have good luck in the coming year. Googling around, it seems there's supposedly some symbolism here... cracking the eggs represents Christ coming out of the tomb, or something like that. But nobody mentioned this to me. (Well, nobody explained the tradition to me at all. They just asked if I wanted an egg, and suddenly, boom, there I was, muttering in my bad Romanian and smacking my egg against one rival after another.) Interestingly, I didn't see this tradition at Easter (I was still in Albania) nor in the first couple of days after Easter. But suddenly today, everyone is showing up with eggs from the weekend. I'm guessing that's because, before today, everyone was still indopat.
