The Orthodox Cross is actually referred to by many names: Byzantine Cross, Russian Cross and the Suppendaneum Cross. Every Church is seen with the cross present and the cross symbolizes so much and means so much to the person wearing one. The cross is a special piece as it is one given at the baptism. The baptism cross is very important and cherished by the person that wears it.
Red eggs (in Greek: kokkina avga, κόκκινα αυγά, pronounced KOH-kee-nah ahv-GHAH) are perhaps the brightest symbol of Greek Easter, representing the blood of Christ and rebirth.
This is one of the biggest holidays on the Greeks Calendar. The Greek Orthodox Easter is held every year and falls at different times of the year compared to the English Easter.
