Happy Easter!

Spring brings flowers all over the earth.
It brings also the biggest celebration for christians: Easter!
This year,as every year,
I made our tradition sweets,
koulourakia
and tsourekia.
I painted the red eggs
and prepared some baskets
for my children's godmathers and grandparents.
Last night, as it was the Holy Saturday, we stayed at the church until one o'clock a.m. and then all my family shared the resurrectional dinner.
We ate mageiritsa
- m..m..m.. my mom cooks it perfectly
every year -
clinked red eggs.

While I'm writing these lines, the men of my family are roasting a lamp on a spit! That's our tradition for Easter!
I wish eveybody

HAPPY EASTER

to you and your families!

Hi Marina!
Happy Easter!
I wanna eat some koulourakia!
It looks like bread!
Is it a kind of bread?
I wanna eat fresh baked koulourakia!

Is clinking red eggs a greek tradition?

What a coincidence, I did Economics in University too.
