For Greek Orthodox Christians, Easter doesn't fall on the same day as the Catholic one does (most of the time). Our way of practice has some similarities in that it is more casual, we give out Easter baskets and paint eggs, but tradition states that the only necessary colour to paint our eggs is red, we have special Easter cookies called koulourakia and holiday bread called tsoureki. Lastly and the most iconic thing is that we roast a lamb on the spit.

This picture is meant to capture that although Greeks are now found everywhere, societies have evolved, gender roles are pretty much an outdated concept, we have technology and our lifestyles have modernised, the very core of our traditions that are built upon family unity, love, appreciation and hope is a constant.

Happy Easter from my people to you and any other fellow Greeks out there. God bless you.
