To me, being Miss Hellene is not only about the social aspect but about embracing my Hellenic traditions and cultures too. For our Holy Week this year, I am back home with my family in Klerksdorp and after our beautiful church service last night I stayed a little longer to help the rest of the ladies in the community to decorate our Epitaphio for the tonight’s church service.
Easter is by far my favourite time of the year. I love how different our Greek culture is and the different traditions that we have. It was a very pleasant night, bonding with ladies in my community and I feel happy to have contributed even just a little to my own community.
On a lighter note, something I found hilarious and would like to share. This morning a lady who works in our household found our dyed red eggs and threw them away thinking that something was wrong with the eggs and they looked a little too suspicious!
I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their Holy Week and has a blessed Easter.
