Greek Easter

2013 05 06 Greek Easter

Greek Easter this year has fallen in May, more than a month after the Easter celebrations in the Catholic and Protestant churches.  This is the most important event in the Greek church and the fasting over lent culminates in a feast that is looked forward to by everyone in the family. A lamb is cooked over a spit all morning and the table laden with salads, sea food and Greek delicacies.  The rain that has led up to Sunday stops and the day in bathed in sunlight.  Steve’s parents are hosting the event and extended family exchange news over brightly painted eggs and lamb, plucked straight off the spit.

As the sun sets, we finally leave laden with food that will last us for a few more days!
