Do you see my excess baggage? hahahaha
It's Holy week here in Greece and everyone is getting ready for the biggest holiday of the year..Easter. Saturday night there is a midnight mass, where all the Greek people gather outside of church holding candles. The candles are a big thing here!! Everywhere you look, you see handmade candles(labades) being sold. One of the stores I sell my work to, will be using one of my pendants as an ornament for the labada :)
Easter day is celebrated with lots of food and music! It's tradition to cook lamb on a spit, ideally on an island.... but I will slow roasting mine in the oven with lots of rosemary and garlic. desert is Joanna's famous chocolate covered cheesecake ;0
Another tradition is Easter bread,(tsoureki) which is similar to challah bread, but sweeter.
Happy Easter to all the Greek people :) and Russian too, since we celebrate our Easters together.
