In Russia people celebrate Easter by adorning their homes baking kulich cakes, making a Paskha (sweet cake out of cottage cheese), and painting as many as hundreds of eggs, which were divided equally between members of the family. They greeted relatives and friends by kissing them 3 times and saying "Christ in Risen!"
From the earliest times, the egg was a symbol of rebirth in most cultures. Eggs were often wrapped in gold leaf or, if you were peasant, colored brightly by boiling them with the leaves or petals of certain flowers.
