Family traditions shared by Mary L.:
Holy Thursday - Bake fish-shaped bread and serve it with "wine" (grape juice)
Easter - Family members stand in a circle with their hard boiled Easter eggs in hand. The first person turns to one side and says to the person next to him "He is risen.", the second person responds, "Truly, He has risen." and they crack their two eggs together. The second person then turns to the individual on his opposite side and repeats the process. This continues around the circle until the first person has the chance to respond "Truly, He has risen." A fun way to crack Easter eggs on Easter morning!
