Cvetnica is the Feast of the coming of spring and all bearing the names of plants and flowers. People take from church willow twigs and carry them to their homes for health. According to the Bulgarian traditions hang a gate of plaited chaplet.
So now I will write about Easter. I like this holiday because I have name day too .In my country we decorate eggs on Great Thursday or Holy Saturday. In my home we paint the eggs on Holy Saturday. The first egg is always coloured in red and when is still warm we make circle around our face for health. My father boiled the eggs and me and my mum decorate them. For extra decoration we use leaves of parsley,coloured pencil or wax. I use cotton to make many –coloured eggs. At midnight on Saturday on Sunday when Easter comes we knocking the eggs and say each other “Xristos Voskrese” “ Vo istina Voskrese”. In my country we have traditional to make special sweet bread and we called Easter cake. We have Easter lunch with roast lamb and green salad.

Of course we celebrate Easter in my country. Easter is a huge holiday in Bulgaria. Christmas and Easter are two of very important feasts for us.We celebrate over three days. Before Easter is the Holy Week and the Lent. In my country we have forty days of preparation period before Easter. I fast only in the week leading up to Easter. Before to writing about how we celebrate Easter I would like to write about one of our nice and colourful holidays, Cvetnica.

Perfect use of the verb fast. :)

Cvetnica is a Christian festival celebrated one week prior to Easter, on the Sunday after St. Lazarus. It is also called Willow's Sunday. Cvetnica is the Feast of the coming of spring and all things bearing the names of plants and flowers. People take willow twigs from church and carry them to their homes for health. According to the Bulgarian traditions we hang a gate (?wreath) of plaited chapletsI'm not sure what you mean by "gate" in the last sentence.

So now I shall write about Easter. I like this holiday because I have my name day as well. In my country we decorate eggs on Holy Thursday or Easter Saturday. In my home we paint the eggs on Easter Saturday. The first egg is always coloured (dyed? painted?) in red and while it is still warm we make a circle around our face for health. My father boils the eggs and me and my mother and I decorate them. For extra decoration we use sprigs of parsley, coloured pencil or wax. I use cotton to make multicoloured eggs. At midnight on Easter Saturday on Sunday when Easter comes we knocking the eggs together and say to each other, "Xristos Voskrese” then “ Vo istina Voskrese”. In my country we have it is the traditional to make a special sweet bread which we called Easter cake. We have Easter lunch with roast lamb and green salad. It is a very nice to have holidays where people celebrate together.

Good work! I corrected your paragraph thoroughly, and made some alternative suggestions.

I understand the Bulgarian egg-knocking tradition; it's similar to the Greek tradition. :)
