The first day of Easter begins with rituals and customs preserved from ancient times. Arriving home from church, all family members wash in a bowl of uncooked water containing a red egg, a sign of health, and a silver coin, a sign of wealth and purity. Before feasting on the chosen, lovingly cooked dishes, both young and old take from the Easter amphora. The Easter custom is also the one of egg-pecking and the children's search for red eggs, customs that are still preserved today in Sadova.
Un alt obicei al primei zile de Paşti este participarea la vecernie. În jurul orei 16:00, sadovenii îmbracă portul popular şi păşesc din nou în lăcaşul de cult.
