A Family Tradition

Here are our family's Greek Easter Eggs! They came out better than I thought they would.
Dying Easter Eggs red is an ancient tradition in the Greek culture (I am 100% Greek). The red symbolizes Christ's blood, and the egg symbolizes His "Rebirth" (Resurrection). On Sunday morning we always play a game with the Easter eggs where one person says "Christos Anesti!" (Christ has risen), and the other person says, "Alathos Anesti!" (He has risen indeed)! and then they bang their eggs together (symbolizing the breaking of the tomb) and whichever egg is not cracked, is the winner! It's great fun! Happy Easter!
