Kalo Pascha!

Kalo Pascha! Today is Orthodox Easter and all around Greece people are celebrating with feasts (lamb, of course). There will also be a lot of red eggs – symbols of blood and rebirth. It is the custom here to tap the tip of a red egg against someone else’s egg. The one whose egg does not crack, naturally, receives good fortune.

I posted an Easter related image last year that makes me smile.

A straw hen basket roosting in a tree, filled with red eggs.
