kids normally put candies on there, or they put the X and B, which stands for [a Russian phrase] that
translates as 'Christ is risen,'" she says. "Then
we take the kulichi to the church on Easter night and have them blessed. Then we eat them."
Kids will also be able to decorate eggs and pussy willows, and their
parents will be able to buy additional kulichi, pashka (a sweet farmers cheese), pieroshki, and Easter decorations. There's no
entry fee; however, to reserve a kulich for your child, call Biba in the next
day or two. She isn't quoting prices, but all the funds raised go toward youth programs, so give generously. (Thanks to the Richmond SF blog for the link.)
