One weekend ago it was easter orthodox. V and I went to the Romanian orthodox service at around midnight on saturday and it lasted several hours. It was a lovely service even though I barely understood the liturgy since it was in Romanian. I definitely napped for the last half of the service, but I’m proud of us for sticking it through!

We lit the candles at the beginning of the service and kept it lit all the way until we got home, as tradition requests.
I also half haphazardly tried to make cozonac, the Romanian easter bread that is traditionally made. But then it started to look funny and I think it’s a far cry from what V ibs used to eating, but here it is!
Happy Easter Orthodox!
