Easter – VELIKA NOČ is a big holiday time in Slovenia: locals start to prepare to celebrate it in the most unique way: on Saturday before Palm Sunday there are plenty of workshops of how to prepare BUTARA- a unique Palm Sunday Bush. Mostly made of greens, but the most colorful one is the one from Ljubljana region. Bunches from Ljubljana are made from different colored spruce shavings woven together. They are a great souvenir from Slovenia as well, because its colors stay very fresh for the rest of the year. The week after more or less everyone is focused on preparing Easter Basket with: ham, a root of horseradish, homemade bread, colored hardboiled eggs, Slovenian cake POTICA as well as with a bottle of an excellent wine. The food is blessed in the church on Holy Saturday and consumed the following morning. That is the most delicious breakfast- you should not miss!
