    We also offer festive candles, ornaments, and fun activities that your family can enjoy together. For an especially traditional touch, add our symbolic Easter Lamb, or Baranek wielkanocny, representing the sacrificial Paschal Lamb — in other words, Jesus’ victory of life over death. Made of butter or sugar rock candy but also of dough, wood, plaster, fleece, or even plastic, the lamb usually wields a red banner of Resurrection emblazoned with a gold cross, although other colors are also encountered. It should go into the basket last because, in effect, it watches over the rest of the ingredients. (Robert Strybel)
