Easter break

Hello here I hope you’re enjoying a fabulous break over Easter, we sure have had some fabulous weather didn’t we? Our stay in London was really good, it was so nice seeing dad again and we had a really good time together however there was one person who we all missed and that was mum. We started Easter Day  with a traditional breakfast and the cracking of the dyed eggs. This is an Easter tradition in the Orthodox religion, you dye eggs bright red (although in the modern days  eggs get decorated in every colour of the rainbow) and then at the table before your meal you partner with one of the guests/family member and say Christos a Inviat! (Christ has Risen!), the other person responds Adevarat C-a Inviat!  (Truly He is Risen!)
You then proceed and tap each other’s eggs.  The persons egg that remains intact is supposed to have good fortune for the coming year and is the winner, a lot of thought goes into choosing the hardest egg from the bowl and I can confirm that this year my sister’s egg was the strongest much to Luca’s disgust.
We then headed towards Central London mainly for dad’s benefit, and as you can see below the preparations for an upcoming important wedding have started. I loved seeing the city all dressed up what a special treat for all those visiting London at this time.city of london
I love the Royal Family and I am so excited about this wedding.
In the afternoon we came home and cooked the most fabulous English Roast Dinner, we had lamb of course and it was yummy. I love how as a family we combine our two different cultures.
I will leave you with a few snaps of our day, hopefully you had a lovely Easter weekend with your family.
