      EVENT DETAILS
      Eastern Orthodox Christian Easter

      Eastern Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter on the Julian calendar rather than the Gregorian calendar their Western brothers and sisters.

      Greeks mainly color eggs red (scarlet) to signify the blood of Christ. They use hard-boiled eggs (painted red on Holy Thursday) which are baked into twisted sweet-bread loaves or distributed on Easter Sunday; people rap their eggs against their friends' eggs and the owner of the last uncracked egg is considered lucky.
