Did you know that many Greek people celebrate Good Friday today?  Their Easter eggs are yet to come.

The very best Easter for me was a special one I spent with a Greek friend and her family.  Many moons ago now.  We went to Midnight Mass (a big deal when you’re seven), we baked Tsoureki, and best of all, we made red eggs and then held an Egg-Off, trying to crack each others’ eggs with a spoon.

This Easter, Mum and I decided to make them again. From the top: finished eggs, eggs wrapped in onion skins and (clean!) pantihose, and eggs boiling in food dye.

Chroniá Pollá!Have a wonderful Easter.
