I wish a very good friday for the Christian members of this forum. I hope I said the Greek version of Happy Easter correct :)

According to the Orthodox religion Jesus was resurrected the Sunday after Passover and hence every Orthodox Christian easter is the sunday after passover (supposedly the last supper was a passover dinner)

either way the only day i celebrate today is my nations' independence :)

Cheers garbitsch :). Tomorrow is Easter for most people here in England, but the Orthodox here celebrate Easter (Pascha) on May 1st (very late this year!). We are having a party at the Greek church hall tomorrow, but it's nothing to do with Easter, but to raise money for local ambulances.
