Letter to the Editor: Slovak culture alivein Pennsylvania

Re: Egad, its Easter egg time, By Zuzana Habšudová, April 14 - 20, Vol 9, No. 14

I am very involved in Slovak folk culture here in Pittsburgh, PA. The traditions live on at our church. This past Easter, as in the past 13 years, breakfast was served to 400 people. People were teaching the traditions of eggs, making the traditional food such as hrin sirak and klobasa. All of my life my family and I have been involved in folk culture, dancing, singing, and also playing the fujara. We visited Slovakia last summer and were awed by the changes that have taken place. But folk culture is still strong.
