Pisanki symbolize the revival of nature and the hope that Christians gain from faith in the resurrection. Pisanki are created by drawing on an egg shell covered with a layer of wax, or alternately drawing designs with wax on bare egg. The egg is then submerged into a dye. In the past, only women decorated eggs. In fact, men were not allowed inside the house during the process. Today, however, both men and women participate in the decorating. on Easter Sunday, before the traditional breakfast, these eggs are exchanged and shared among the family at the table. This is a symbol of friendship similar to the sharing of the Oplatek (Christmas wafer) on Christmas Eve.
