Easter is approaching…

Before you going saying that I have a loose screw and point out that Easter has already passed, I’d like to reveal that Orthodox Easter is celebrated on a different time from Catholic Christians:

Easter in Greece is the most celebrated holiday, where it is an opportunity for families and loved ones to gather together and praise its significance through centuries-old traditions:

It is an opportunity for the God-parents to bond with the children they have baptized and to guide them through their path to following the Greek Orthodox faith:

During their visit it is tradition for the God-parents to give their God-child the lambada (Easter candle), which is lit at the Holy Saturday church service. Being a gift that represents such an important occasion, lambades are often beautifully decorated.

With so many common lambades out for sale in the market, I wanted to unfold my creative abilities and challenge myself into producing some unique ones. Et voila the results….

Such beautiful lambades can’t come inside any old plain box, can they now? Here are a couple of ideas I cracked up….

Enjoy the rest of your day!
