Many streets of Melbourne will be spiced with the smell of cooking meat this weekend.
The men of Oakleigh gathered to collect their allotted lamb at midday in preparation for Easter celebrations. The Western and Eastern Christian Easters are at quite different times this year so there will be many children eagerly waiting for this one I’m sure.
In other parts of the world celebrations will be equally colourful and a great set of images, including the one below, is shown in International Business Times.
Some other traditions in good supply in Oakleigh are the special bread with red eggs
and bundles of candles for the passing the sacred light, part of the celebration of the resurrection.

So “kale Páscha” – “Christos Anesti!” to everyone around the world celebrating this Sunday.
