Orthodox Christians around the world have a custom to bring foods in a basket to be blessed at Pascha. The foods traditionally brought in the basket have special significance, but we can also add other foods that we love as well. The basket is usually covered with a white cloth embroidered with the words, “Christ is Risen.” It is also customary to have a blessed candle in it to light at the Blessing, which usually takes place at church following the Resurrection services, and other prescribed times. Below is a nice article which describes how to prepare a Paschal Basket.
