Happy Easter to those following the Catholic schedule. Orthodox Easter is next Sunday here in Russia.

In my family, every year we make this bunny cake. It is made using two round cakes, and then you cut the ears out and what is left is a bow-tie! Dad sent me a picture of the cake this year. Sometimes we use different things to make the whiskers and the tie - looks like Dad used alot of icing this year!

Next Saturday night, I am hoping to do this tour - EASTER NIGHT IN MOSCOW. Celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ by going to four of the oldest Russian Orthodox churches in Moscow. You will visit the Church of the Archangel Gavriil, the Church of All Saints, and the Church of the Deposition of the Lord’s Robe as each prepares for Easter service. The decoration of the alter and the blessing of the Easter Cake are two of the Russian Orthodox traditions you will witness. Finally, you will attend Easter night service at the Church of John the Warrior.

I'll let you know how that goes.
