The history of Dying Eggs Red for Greek Orthodox Easter: 

Eastern Orthodox Christians dye hard boiled eggs red to symbolize the blood of Jesus Christ. The egg itself is a symbol of life and the resurrection of Jesus. 

The hard shell of the egg symbolizes the sealed Tomb of Christ.

The cracking of the egg (The Greek Egg game) represents Christ's resurrection from the dead.

On Easter and on Bright Week - the week after Easter Sunday - Orthodox Christians greet each other with "Christos Anesti!" (Christ is Risen!) and respond with  "Alethos Anesti!" (Truly He is Risen!) 

Instructions For Making Perfectly Bright Red Easter Eggs:

  • Boil the eggs that you wish to dye and let them cool.
  • Dissolve the dye in a pot filled with 1 liter of cool water (30 degrees Celsius) and a half glass of vinegar. 
  • Add in the eggs so they are fully covered with the colored water.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the eggs and place them on paper towels to absorb the extra color and drain the water.
  • Wipe the eggs with vegetable oil to seal the color.

Pascha Candles. Pascha Easter Candles are used in churches in celebration of the Easter Vigil at the Resurrection Service - midnight mass. The candles are used in the ceremonial lighting at midnight. At the Vigil at midnight, the church becomes totally dark representing the tomb of Jesus. The only light comes from an oil candle at the holy altar. A "new fire" is lit and blessed by the priest. The one blessed flame represents the light of Christ coming into the world. The singular flame is then passed parishioner to parishioner and the church becomes lit up with Christ’s light. The tomb is carried outside and around the church (or designated area) three times. Parishioners follow the priest with their lit candles Christ is Risen and the light is a symbol of life trampling upon death (the darkness). “The light of Christ, rising in Glory, dispels the darkness of our hearts and minds.”
