Happy Easter to those who celebrate the Orthodox Easter today! Did you paint eggs this year?
To the rest, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and a great Sunday.
Are you celebrating something today?

I also celebrated Easter. I have a special post about that.
I saw them. Happy Easter, dear Elenka!
It was a strange Easter but perhaps it is better this way as I do not really like the parades that are prepared by the Catholic Church. Everything was quiet and the birds were singing freely
The songs of the birds are very cheerful. I never engage in big celebrations, so for me it was almost as usual.
what a lovely picture. What did you have for Easter dinner? In the US tradition is Ham!
Thank you so much! Here, lamb is traditional, but we don’t like it much. We had pork, the traditional sweet bread and painted boiled eggs.
sounds wonderful, i was going to make Lamb, but other than my son-in-law and I, no one else wanted it.
The situation here is similar,but that’s how democracy works. 😁
i paid for the ham, cooked the ham. how is that democracy? 🙂
Majority rule, but I am not a fan either 😀
in the end it was ok, i got to harass all of them during dinner! Took the Ham out of the oven, and let it fill the house with the smell. They all came downstairs and I said, sorry 50 minutes until dinner!
(it wasn’t but it was fun)!
I think the painted Easter eggs are beautiful.
Thank you very much, Pamela!
Happy Easter Ellie. I had forgotten about the Orthodox Easter. My late husband’s mother was Orthodox and she always wanted to celebrate the holidays at the usual dates and also the Orthodox dates. We always had double holidays.
Thank you so much! The more holidays, the merrier.
No celebrations of any kind ae seen around here.
There can be different concepts about celebration.
I celebrated Easter last week. I wish you happy holidays.
Thank you so much, dear friend! Have a wonderful new week!
I wonder why the dates are different because the Christmas date and the Orthodox Christmas date is different too.
Because the Catholic church uses the Gregorian calendar, and the Orthodox church uses the Julian calendar. However, some orthodox countries celebrate Christmas on December 25 (for example, Bulgaria and Greece). 🙂
Happy Easter Ellie. Ours was last Sunday. Pretty eggs.
Thank you so much, Carol!
Have a nice Easter evening, dear Ellie …. I celebrated Easter last week
Thank you so much! I hope you had a wonderful holiday last week!
