The second Sunday of Easter= Atvelykas in Lithuania

We learned only Saturday about this celebration in Klaipeda. In olden times the celebration of Easter was extended and people visited relatives and god-parents visited their godchildren- those they had witness baptism. And if it had not happened during the week, certainly by atvelykas they should do that. So among the various ethnic games and activities was the celebration of god-parents!

We also went to a small Lithuanian restaurant for traditional food before the event. Erik and David really enjoy cepeliniai and it is fun to watch them eat food they really like. They are somewhat picky about eating at home.
