The Easter Basket of special foods (described below) is arranged on Holy Saturday, and taken to church, where a special blessing ceremony with prayers and sprinkling with Holy Water, is performed by the parish priest.
Most Catholics already celebrated Easter this year on March 27th.
However Orthodox Christians, and some Catholics whose churches still follow the Julian Calendar, will celebrate Easter this Sunday, May 1st.
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL MY READERS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WHO CELEBRATE EASTER THIS SUNDAY.
KHYSTOS VOSKRES – VOISTYNU VOSKRES!
