Today is Easter Sunday in the Churches of the Eastern Orthodox tradition. To everyone who observes this holy feastday, I send best wishes for a Happy Easter! “Christos anesti!” (The Christ is Risen)!
Aaron, my husband, and I are celebrating by hosting a traditional Greek luncheon in our tiny little condo with two couples who are also Greek same gender loving bare practitioners (naturist/nudist). We don’t require our guests to decorate their buttocks as the guys above, but we don’t discourage it either! We haven’t yet decided on whether we’ll decorate our own buttocks but we do have the body paint available in one of our closets!
Above is a photo of the Easter Bread that is served for this meal. It takes almost a full day to prepare and bake and trust me on this, it is delicious! A hard-boiled dyed egg is baked into the top of the loaf and by tradition the egg is always red (signifying the blood of the one crucified). This isn’t the loaf that we’re actually serving. That won’t be ready until Easter morning. The image is taken from the internet.
Aaron uses the recipe of my paternal grandmother. The ingredients we puchse from our neighborhood Greek market. Several of the spices needed are only available at Easter.
