GREEK ORTHODOX EASTER
It is considered to be the most important  celebration for Orthodox Greeks.
Easter(Pascha, Greek: Πάσχα)
Special traditions mark not only the mourning of Christ’s Crucifixion and the celebration of Resurrection, but also the passage from winter to spring.
The word "Pascha" derives from the Jewish "Pasah" which means "Passover". Jewish people celebrated "Pasah" to commemorate their liberation from the Egyptians and the passage of the Red sea.
While in the ancient Greek years, Easter time coincided with the month of Anthesterion (the flowering month), a celebration of spring and the rebirth of vegetation.

ORTHODOX HOLY WEEK



 One of the nicest Greek customs is the use of "red eggs" for the Easter celebration Greeks mainly colour eggs red (scarlet) to signify the blood of Christ. They use hard-boiled eggs, painted red on Holy Thursday. People rap their eggs against their friends' eggs and the owner of the last uncracked egg is considered lucky.
We decorated lots of eggs at school in lots of different ways.




















    



EASTER TABLE
From Fasting to Festive Dishes
The traditional services and customs of Orthodox Easter are inevitably linked with both fasting and festive foods. When the Christians began to celebrate Easter, they retained some of the features of the Jewish Passover, such as eating lamb. In Byzantine times, it was the custom to bake ring-bread with a dyed red egg in the middle. The egg is a symbol of life, while red is the colour of life.
During Holy Week complete fasting is to take place. Palm Sunday, which is the first day of the Holy Week, is a day when only  fish courses are served.
Following 40 days of fasting, the traditional Pascha meal is a banquet of meat, eggs and other long - forbidden animal products. Cheese, eggs, and richly scented breads play an important part on the table, but the meal is always centered around meat.  On Easter Sunday celebration begins early in the morning with the cracking of red eggs and an outdoor feast of roast lamb followed by dancing.

Easter Recipes

"Mageiritsa" is made almost universally from any variety of chopped, sauteed innards, herbs and lettuce, and bound with avgolemono, the country's well-known egg-and-lemon sauce-is not the dish of choice with which to break the fast.
  "Lamb" (or goat on the islands) is the traditional Easter meat served throughout Greece, although how it’s cooked varies from region to region. Spit-roast lamb, which originated in Roumeli, is now the prevalent tradition.
There are many other delicacies included in the Paschal feast such as Kokoretsi  made up of skewering seasoned lamb or goat organ meat, wrapped in caul fat and then by yards of cleaned intestines .  Traditional treats at Easter are the special tsoureki and of course, the koulourakia tis Lambris (Paschal cookies).
