Η Γοργώ και το πασχαλινό αβγό

A cute video for children learning Greek about Holy Week and Pascha with Mormo.  Mormo is a character developed by the University of Crete (an alien from outer space)  that is in a series of short videos that help children learn Greek as a second/foreign language.  Enjoy

Τα χελιδόνια μας

Καλή Άνοιξη!

Pascha basket goodies

I have always had a hard time finding things to put in my kid's Pascha baskets.  I am not a big fan of bunnies and chocolate so I try to find unique items that celebrate their Orthodox faith and Greek heritage.  Having four children with very traditional Greek names, it has always been a challenge to find things printed with their names... until I saw that custom engraves things in Greek .  Take a look at  what this shop has to offer at  One of a kind items engraved in Greek for everyone on your list.
