Happy Orthodox Easter

Happy Orthodox Easter Everyone!  Christ has risen!

Yesterday, my girlfriend and I had baked Pasca, colored eggs and marinated lamb.  She drove for three hours to come visit me so we can celebrate the Orthodox Easter together .  It is very nice to have her here, and I'm very thankful to have such great friends.

Today we got up at 2am to go to the Saint Nicholas church (an Ukrainian Orthodox church)  to bless the beautiful eggs and bread.  In my opinion we had the biggest basket with the most wonderful looking Cozonac and Pasca.  We got to the church right in time for the blessing!   If we were to arrive five minutes later we would have missed the blessing ritual.  We were very excited to get our hands on some Holly Water to bring at home (yes we believe in that!).

In the morning, for breakfast I had one blessed egg and Easter bread with tea, lots of it. 

I wish everyone a Happy Orthodox Easter and may God watch over you.  Hristos a inviat!


  1. Amintiri placute! Doamne, cind imi aduc aminte cum ne-am trezit dimineata sa ne ducem la "sfintit" si imi parea asa devreme, dar iata ca ei cu noaptea in cap sfintesc :), bine ca am reusit! Great memories!
