* Here in Bulgaria, egg cracking is good for more than just eating the egg. After the services on Saturday evening in the Church, the clergy blesses the breads and eggs brought by the people and they return with them to their homes. The ritual of tapping the eggs takes place just before the Easter lunch begins. Each person will select his or her egg. Then the people in turn exchange the Easter greeting before tapping their egg against the eggs of others.
* The person who ends up with the last unbroken egg is believed to have a year of good luck.
* A traditional Easter bread is also prepared and it is called козунак (kozunak)
* Bulgarian Easter traditions are a variation of traditional Orthodox Easter traditions. In Bulgarian Easter is Великден (Velikden).
* The traditional Orthodox Paschal greeting is: "Christ has risen!" The answer is: "Indeed He has risen" Христос Воскресе! Воистина Воскресе! - this is the greeting during 40 days after Pascha (Easter)
* The first egg is always painted red to symbolize the blood of Christ and should be put aside - either to be buried in the fields to ensure fertility or kept in the home to bring good luck.
* It is tradition that the eggs are colored on Holy Thursday after the Divine Liturgy.
