Easter is the time of the year, where many people celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Of course, the days before are the remembrance of the cruelty that life stands for. The deception and untruth followed by the crucifixion of the innocent among the guilty ones.


My very favourite Orthodox Cake

New Life

Besides this, Jesus Christ forgives, but it shall not be forgotten. With his resurrection new life and faith has been brought back into the world. Hence the Easter Celebration. These days also go hand in hand with The Spring. Spring symbolizes the new beginning too. For the most of us it is the start of a new year as life outside comes back after the cold days of winter.


Easter Celebrations bring the end of Lent, 40-day long fasting. Easter Holidays represent honesty and truth, the features I admire so much. Let’s celebrate it together and have some joy in our hearts. No matter if you are Atheist or Orthodox, Catholic or Buddhist, the occasion of truth and honesty should always take a part in our lives.
I wish you all a truly joyful season and honesty in your families, hearts and on the plate, of course. Get inspired and enjoy with me!
Love and pray,
