Preparation for Paskha (Easter)

On Paskha (Russian for Easter) some homes used to serve round cakes with sugary decorative toppings which they call Kulich. According to Wikipedia, those kuliches were a tradition of pre Christian slavic people of Russia, which was sort of ritual bread to celebrate a few important occasions during the year, like the New Year or early spring or in autumn for harvest holiday.

There are factories specializing in these sorts of cakes closer to Easter, and priests sometimes come to the factory to give their “blessings”.
