Easter in romania
Easter holiday is the most important holiday in Romania, and of course, is the most important religious feast in the Christian liturgical year. Christians celebrate this day in their belief that Jesus rose from the death on the third day after His crucifixion. In Romania, there are Eastern Orthodox Christians, as well as Eastern Catholic Christians, the latter being in a smaller number. I am an Orthodox, and I will concentrate on the Orthodox Easter. In Eastern Christianity, the spiritual preparation for "Pascha" begins with the Great Lent, that lasts 7 weeks, meaning 48 days, and it is the longest and the most though fast from the all 4 fasts in the Christian-Orthodox religion.
Her festival was celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox; traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts.
The Date of Easter
Prior to A.D. 325, Easter was variously celebrated on different days of the week, including Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In that year, the Council of Nicaea was convened by emperor Constantine. It issued the Easter Rule which states that Easter shall be celebrated on the first Sunday that occurs after the first full moon on or after the vernal equinox. However, a caveat must be introduced here.

During the week before Catholic Lent, Carnival—called Fastnacht or Fasching—is celebrated in some regions, where people have fancy balls, parades, and other celebrations. In the Rhineland region of western Germany, the first of the five days of Carnival is Weiberfastnacht, or “Women’s Carnival.” The tradition is said to have started in the town of Beuel in the early 19th century, when the laundry women grew tired of watching their husbands celebrating Carnival without them—and, even worse, with the money they earned washing clothes. In protest the women themselves began to celebrate with song and dance. Now this celebration is known for its carefree nature and often bizarre events.
Well spread throughout Romanian countryside is the caroling of the
Ceata de feciori (the Young Fellows Crew). In Transylvania, Banat,
Maramures, and also in Wallachia and Dobruja, young bachelors in
groups of 6 to 25, go caroling around the village for 3 days.
Irrespective of the time of the day, they are expected by the
villagers with lots of food and their porch lights on at night time.
These carols are considered to be some of the most valuable works of
poetry in Eastern Europe.
Note that this includes all of Griffith Park and Los Feliz—two areas that were hitherto generally considered separate from Hollywood by most Angelinos. The population of the district (including Los Feliz) as of the 2000 census was 208,237 . The commercial, cultural, and transportation center of Hollywood is the area where La Brea Avenue, Highland Avenue, Cahuenga Boulevard, and Vine Street intersect Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard. The population of the district is estimated to be about 300,000.
As a portion of the City of Los Angeles, Hollywood does not have its own municipal government, but does have an appointed official that serves as "honorary mayor" for ceremonial purposes only. Currently, the "mayor" is Johnny Grant. Since this is a non-elected, honorary position, Grant has held this position for decades.
Frederick was greatly affected by the speeches on freedom in The Columbian Orator, and so began reading local newspapers and began to learn about abolitionists. Not quite 13 years old but enlightened with new ideas that both tormented and inspired him. Frederick began to detest slavery. His dreams of emancipation were encouraged by the example of other blacks in Baltimore, most of whom were free. But new laws passed by southern state legislators made it increasingly difficult for owners to free their slaves.
Some scientists feel that the climatic phenomena are becoming more frequent due to global warming. Others feel that El Nińo and La Nińa are contributing to the warming/cooling of the earth. Still yet, some people believe that the El Nińo and La Nińa events are simply part of a larger cycle of climatic changes. Unfortunately, we have been studying these events far to short to tell.
27 km away from Curtea de Arges you can see the ruins of the Vlad the Impaler Domain, known today as Dracula Castle, which are built on a peak, near by the Arges spring, in Romania. It is a steep climb up 1,500 steps.
The Castle lays at an altitude of 850m, protected by abrupt slopes. The historians know the site as Poienari Stronghold, dated in 14th century and by compare is smaller and narrower than other constructions of the time(33m W, 40m L).

Vechii saxoni au sarbatorit venirea primaverii aducand omagii zeitei primaverii, Eastre. Cand in secolul al II-lea misionarii crestini au ajuns in mijlocul triburilor nordice cu serbarile lor pagane, au incercat sa ii converteasca la crestinism. Au reusit, insa numai intr-o masura oarecare. Pentru noii crestini interdictia de a-si serba vechile sarbatori pagane ar fi insemnat moartea.
