Greek Orthodox Easter is just a week away, so if you would like to get an idea of what to prepare, I have put together some of my Easter recipes and a few ideas of what to do with the leftovers.
On Easter day a lot of people celebrate their name days: Lambros – Lambrini, Anastasios – Anastasia, Paschalis – Paschalia or whatever their pet names may be. Easter day, also coincides with the name day of Irene or Irenaios, Efraimia or Efraim. George and Georgia will also be celebrating on Monday, after Easter. This happens whenever Easter is after the 23rd April, (the celebration of the feast of St. George), the feast is moved from the 23 April to the first Monday after Easter or, as it is sometimes called, to the Monday of Bright Week.
I have also included some cakes in the list, for those who will be celebrating their name days. Happy Name day to you all!
