Greek Easter

As promised, I’m posting the photos of Greek Easter 
of the way we celebrated it at home.

Holy Thursday is the day that the hard-boiled eggs are dyed red, 
signifying the blood of Christ, and the Easter bread, 
called tsoureki, is baked. 
I made both of them by my self… 

Good Friday, in a chapel and
the mass in a convent hidden in the woods.

The name of lilac is related to the Greek name of Easter “Pasha” 
and the flower is called in Greek “pashalia”.

By tradition, Easter is always celebrated outdoors. In some places, Easter is a community celebration with rows of lambs roasting in the village square.

Easter morning...

Checking out!

Easter menu always includes kokoretsi and roasted lamb.
Everything went fine and we can proudly say that we have the know how 
to repeat this experiment on the BBQ perhaps with a little pork…


In the meantime, a few meters away from the garden…

Summer winks at us…

Have a lovely week!
