Egg Dye Kits  

For Orthodox Easter, families get together to dye eggs red, the colour symbolising the blood of Jesus. The eggs are hard-boiled and then dyed (blue, red, yellow are common colours used). Family members at Easter lunch usually try to crack each other’s eggs and the last person with an uncracked egg is considered lucky for that year! You can also paint and decorate the eggshells too. Both the Tsoureki and red eggs are made on Holy Thursday but can only be eaten on Easter Sunday. 

Shop a huge selection of eggs plus egg dye kits, egg wraps, stickers, displays and gift boxes at The Eggporium. Then wander over to the Dairy Produce Hall to explore Dianne’s Delights, Queen Vic Deli and Hellenic Deli’s egg dyeing kits.

For more traditional Orthodox celebrations, some enjoy Greek-style sweet brioche bread, called Tsoureki. It is made so there are three braids, which are done to represent the three aspects of the Holy Trinity. You can find this at Hellenic Deli.
