THE SYMBOLS OF EASTER EGGS how to create them The hand-painted or otherwise decorated egg (kraslice) is the most recognizable symbol of Czech Easter. Girls decorate Easter eggs to give them to boys on Easter Monday. There are many Easter egg decorating techniques and the more elaborate ones require a certain level of skill. Different materials can be used, such as bee's wax, straw, watercolors, onion peels, picture stickers. The most common designs are probably geometrical patterns, but you can also see flowers, leaves or snowflake patterns in a whole range of colors. There are no limitations to creating pretty, colorful eggs. Obr. 1 Whipping the girls Pussywillow and pomlázka Young, live pussywillow twigs are thought to bring health and youth to anyone who is whipped with them. An Easter pomlázka (frompomladit or make younger ) is a braided whip made from pussywillow twigs. It has been used for centuries by boys who go caroling on Easter Monday and symbolically whip girls on the legs. In the past, pomlázka was also used by the farmer's wife to whip the livestock and everyone in the household, including men and children. There would be no Czech Easter without the pomlázka.boys used to make their own pomlázkas in the past. The more twigs, the more difficult it was to braid one. This skill is not widespread anymore and pomlázkas can be bought in stores and street stands. Some men don't even bother and use a single twig or even a wooden spoon! Obr. 2 OTHER SYMBOLS ARE: Baby Animals Lamb, Bunny Rabbit, Chicken One Easter tradition is to bake a lamb. In the Czech Republic, real lamb is usually replaced with one made from gingerbread. Dousing Dousing a girl with water has a similar symbolic meaning as the pomlázka.
