This year the Greek Orthodox Easter falls on Sunday May 5th (!) 5 weeks after the western Easter. It will be a hot Easter and it looks like we skipped spring as temperatures climbed, reaching 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) today in Athens! Forecasters predicted a mini heatwave lasting (at least) untill Easter Sunday…

Today is Great Monday, the beginning of the Holy Week (Megali Evdomada) and this is when most people take their fasting seriously.
Church services are held throughout Holy Week, the women dye eggs red (symbolising the blood of Christ) and bake Easter biscuits ‘koulourakia”, buns “tsourekia” and “kalitsounia” (cheese pies), to be eaten after Easter Saturday when the fast ends

…So this will be an (not only) Easter-themed week for pelly*made. I hope you’ ll enjoy :)
