On May 2, Greeks around the world will celebrate Greek Orthodox Easter, or Pascha.
In a year when home confinement continues to define our lives, we can enhance every moment from the communal joy of the Anastasi midnight mass of Holy Saturday to the egg-butting tradition on Easter Sunday, and everything in between, by brightening our homes with attractive traditional Greek decorations and flavours.
Fortunately, there are several wonderful options for Easter gifts you can make to others or to yourself with one simple click. Here, we have selected our favourite online shopping options.
These beautifully crafted and decorated ceramic eggs are items that brighten up any Easter table.
