Easter is coming - again
Not that you'd be able to tell from the weather, which actually feels very much like Christmas - the only saving grace being the longer days since the clocks sprang forward last month! Next Sunday is the Eastern Orthodox Easter, a whole 35 days after this year's Western Easter on 23 March.
This is the Easter card that my 6-year-old goddaughter made for me at school. Isn't it cool? It's the first time she's made me a card and as you can imagine I'm a very proud godmother :-)
You'll notice the egg is dark red, almost crimson. This is the colour eggs are dyed in Greece, and they're usually plain, with no swirls, dots, stripes or other decorations.
I can't wait for Easter second time round. Roll on the Holy Week!
