I’m playing catch up with my recap posts! Today’s recap is of Greek Easter.
My family’s Easter traditions include:
–Church in the morning
–Going to my Papou’s house
–Taking 25 combinations of awkward family photos on the back deck <— we seriously take the same pictures every single year
–Eating a lot
–Annual Easter egg cracking tournament which you can read all about here.
Here’s the photo shoot:
Here’s the food:
And here’s the egg cracking tourney:
This year we took our egg cracking tournament to the next level because Uncle Chris had a giant trophy made and called it the Avgo Award. In case you are wondering, “Avgo” is the Greek word for egg. We are a bunch of nut cases, don’t you think? In our defense, we each knew about three other people who were trying out this tradition with their own families this year. Maybe we’re setting a new standard for everyone else to follow?
What’s the weirdest family tradition your family has?

What a lovely family you have! You are very lucky!
Love the post and pictures! What an awesome family. We have a tradition of shooting guns at the range on Christmas morning. I grow up in the country, that’s for sure.
Love the avgo award! Hilarious!
Love the pictures. A caption might be needed under the last one with Uncle Chris and I. He made me squat so he could look like he was higher up on the podium(Gold Medalist) and I was the 2nd place winner (silver medalist) with the mini egg shaped award. What a fun day! Thanks for posting. Love you, Auntie Paula
Unbelievable!!Really, AVGO AWARD!! I like this idea very much!But here in Greece we celebrate Easter with a hole lamp in a big stew that’s spinning and the fire is made from branches from vines!!!This is a flavor for once a year and is “apaichti” (very very good)… Kisses from Roumeli (central Greece)!!
Love your fotos…
