Preparation for the celebration of Easter
Through the preparation of the celebration of Easter we buy food and presents. For that reason:
- We take care of the budget and the record of the products
- We avoid the unnecessary buys
- We compare the prices before every buy in order to avoid extortionate practices
- We buy food from certified producers and not from free lancers in order to avoid buying non secure and non certified products
- We check the place where the food are disposed in order to fulfill the conditions of hygiene and security
- We make sure that the church candles designed for the children are accompanied with toys that write the appropriate age
At the end of the week we usually visit our place of origin or we organize excursions for the holidays.
When we drive:
- We always wear our seat belts and we make sure that the children are sitting in the back seat in their special seats according to their age
- We activate the vehicle safety and we park only in a safe place
- We do not consume alcohol and we avoid using our mobile phones
The Holy Saturday means the end of the Lent. We owe as consumers to pay attention to the supper as we neglect our nutritional habits by consuming the traditional magiritsa (Greek Easter Soup) and the dyed eggs.
- We make sure that the eggs we buy have laying and expiring date
- We avoid the buy of eggs that have their shell broken or cracked. The eggs are preserved in a cool place away from other food.
- We make sure that the egg dyeing has instructions for use in Greek and we preserve the boiled eggs always in the fridge.
- We avoid the consumption of eggs that the dyeing has infiltrated in their intern and we prefer the natural egg dyeing.
- The guts we will use for the magiritsa should be well washed and if they are exposed to the environment should not be bought.
- In case that the guts for the magiritsa are frozen, the check of the freezing and expiring date is necessary.
- At the church we keep our distance and we are careful with the candles that have inflaminable materials.
- We keep our distance from the place that has Bengal lights and we prevent their use from minors.
The traditional Easter Table mostly has roasted meat and chocolate eggs.
- Be careful with the coals and the grill during the grilling in order to avoid burns and fires.
- When we buy meat, we should check the stamp of the health check which certifies that the necessary check has been done from the responsible body. Also the country and place of its origin should be written.
- The meat disposal from the producers should take place inside refrigerators of specific temperature and not exposed to microbes.
- The chocolates should be preserved in cool places and their expiring date should be checked.
- The chocolate eggs may have small toys that should be checked for their suitability for use according to the age of the children.
These festive days should not be accompanied with extreme behavior, food and consumption of alcohol. The correct choice of food and the careful attitude during these days will ensure happy holidays.
