Celebrate Orthodox Easter at Pretend City

  • Details

    Orthodox Christians in Greece, Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, and other countries around the world are preparing to celebrate Orthodox Easter, or Pascha. Church services, decorating eggs, playing games and eating traditional foods are typical parts of the celebration. Decorated eggs are an important part of the Orthodox Easter tradition. In Greece, the hard-boiled eggs are dyed a bright red. Romanians paint hollowed-out eggs in traditional colors of yellow, red, and black – as well as a variety of other color combinations and patterns.
