Greek Orthodox Easter happens to fall on the 1st of May this year, and while for the rest of you Easter has passed,we thought it would be lovely to show you some of our Greek traditions and customs in the following weeks. Here we are choosing our Easter candles called (lambades) in Greek. These are special candles made for Easter and are given as gifts to children from their God-parents. These candles are usually lavishly decorated and are only used for one Easter midnight service.
All Easter candles have been beautifully handmade by http://ireneandnickicreate.blogspot.gr/ which happens to be a blog my sister Irene and I (Nicki) share.
