I found a wonderful article today entitled Rita Wilson's big fat Greek Orthodox Easter, and love the lines she uses to describe Greek Easter, "We don't do bunnies. We don't do chocolate. We don't do pastels. We do lamb, sweet cookies, and deep red."
Greeks dye eggs red to symbolize the blood and sacrifice of Christ (deep red color best obtained using brown eggs), and rebirth and new life (the eggs themselves); this is traditionally done on Holy Thursday. Below is my basket of eggs from last year, ready for the game. Note: Because I'm torn between the two Easters, I do have pastels!
