  Easter's table
by Lilasel

In Greek, Easter is called Pascha, meaning passover. It is the eternal Passover from death to life and from earth to heaven.

I was lucky to see the celebration of Easter in Greece in 2003: the procession of the "epitaphios" in Monemvassia, unforgettable customs in Leonidio on Easter's Eve and the lunch-dinner with Big Greek Family on Easter Sunday with traditional greek music and dances!!!
