Easter Saturday midnight blessing

Midnight Easter Saturday blessing

Easter in Greece is one of the most beautiful times to visit.  At midnight on Easter Saturday, the traditional Easter blessing is given by the parish priest.  After the blessing, the bells chime and fireworks are set off.  The tradition then is for families to gather together and celebrate with the traditional Easter food.  Christos Anesti to all and Kalo Paskha.
