        Miss 16yrs attended her first Greek Easter with her Boyfriends Family.

        Ya Ya apparently in charge.

        Miss 16 said it was feeling like she was at home, with Nonna and Nonno, they all eat, talk food and give shit to each other. Agood time.

        LOL, I think she is too PC, doesn't talk her mind enough....

        She had a great time.

        The TRUTH is out there,
        the Aliens think its a great joke on us.
        We still believe in Santa, but eat the Easter Bunny

        And the Easter Bunny tastes SO GOOD !!
        That's why he is made of Chocolate.

        What this post should really be called is 'Orthodox Easter'. The Greek and other Eastern Orthodox Churches (though not all) still use the Julian Calendar. For more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_calendar

          Whilst the above might be politically correct:

          Greek was the most prevalent shared language in the demographic regions where the Byzantine Empire flourished, and Greek, being the language in which the New Testament was written, was the primary liturgical language of the church. For this reason, the eastern churches were sometimes identified as "Greek" (in contrast to the "Roman" or "Latin" church, which used a Latin translation of the Bible), even before the Great Schism of 1054. After 1054, "Greek Orthodox" or "Greek Catholic" marked a church as being in communion with Constantinople, much as "Catholic" did for communion with Rome.
          Additionally when a Greek writes the comment it's Greek Easter, if a Russian, Romanian or Egyptian writes it, they can call it whatever they like.

          Further to the complication, it was the English that come up with the words Greece and Greeks.
          The original words are Hellas and Hellines. In fact, during the Roman Empire Greeks identified as Romaeoi (Romans). After the Great Schism they adopted the name Hellines once again.

            Coz ya all now live in 'Starya' you are just using the 'Greek Easter' thing as an excuse for a second organised piss up in the same Calendar month. You'd think by now being Australians of any religion or background... No excuse is required.
