Today we celebrate with BBQ

In Orthodox Greece, today, Saturday, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. This is not a religious thread. It’s about customs. We eat meat after 40 days of fasting. What about your country? How do you celebrate Easter in Catholic countries?

I think over here it has become more of a commercial holiday. It is more about chocolate eggs and the Easter bunny than anything religious. The same with Christmas really.

Yes I agree with @anon98459728

I mean my parents are religious and the most we do on Christmas is sing happy birthday to Jesus with a cake.

But apart from that, not much religious stuff, defo not during easter

Good Friday is a bigger deal than Easter in Catholic countries.

Thanks a lot @Wave, that’s very considerate of you to remember !
Happy Easter to you and your family as well !

Unfortunately this year I could not be with my family. I had to cancel my trip back home due to ********* (better not mention it, although it’s obvious).

Thanks buddy for remembering me.I had a meal from my volunteer neighbor, it was delicious.
She cooks very well, and her son brought “Musaka” to my door step, as we are not alowed to leave the building.
I hope next year I might go to church.


My buddies this days :shushing_face:
Thanks @Wave

My parents celebrate I don’t. I was religious before my SZ but religion only made me worse after because of hallucinations and delusions. Religion didn’t help me recover from SZ like my parents said that a miracle could heal me.

I prayed for more than 9 years so Jesus heals me from SZ but it didn’t work. I hate religion now and avoid it. I put high volume music when my parents listen to religious stuff.

Aziz, are you orthodox or else why you are dereiling the thread?

@Wave did you battle your eggs? Trying to figure out if this is a Syrian tradition or just a weird thing my family does.

What do you mean by battle @ninjastar?

When you hit them against each other to see which one breaks?

I introduced Starlet to it and I told him it was part of my culture, but the only other Syrians I know are related to me so I dont know if this was actually a family tradition and they just told us it was a Syrian thing to make it sound more special.
