A kris can be divided into three parts: blade (bilah or wilah), hilt (hulu), and sheath (warangka).
These parts of the kris are objects of art, often carved in meticulous detail and made from various materials: metal, precious or rare types of wood, or gold or ivory.
Two eggs are cracked together, the first person saying, “Christ is risen,” and the second person saying, “Indeed He is risen.” The loser will die earlier and must present his egg to the winner so as not to be dealt a rotten egg in the afterlife.
Fires may be lit near churches or on hills for an Easter vigil, especially in the countryside in regions such as Bucovina.
In the past, boys may have doused unmarried girls with water or perfume for good luck or to ensure a quick marriage.
