In Polish, the word 'pisac' means 'to write' and it's a long, long held custom at Easter for Polish (and Lithuanian and Russian) cultures to share a single hard boiled egg that had been blessed, at the traditional Polish Easter breakfast. That means no matter how many people are at that breakfast, just one single blessed egg is sliced and shared.
A few years ago I took a class in the Ukranian decorated eggs and it was much more intricate than this class. Sister explained the peasants didn't have the supplies the more intricate eggs demanded, they celebrated the tradition, but simply.
Our colors were food coloring tempered with white vinegar and hot water.
There were about twelve of us and everyone used their imagination, their various talents and the eggs were beautiful. Even more important, they were all different.
These were some of her eggs to share as an example
And these were mine nestled in their Polish pottery dish ( tee hee.)
