Today is Orthodox Good Friday  (Veliki Petak) in Eastern Christianity including the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem and two major Orthodox Churches of Greece and  Russia and also  Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Armenia, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Italy and even The Orthodox Church of Japan …

It is a strict day of fasting. No crocheting or any kind of needlework is allowed during the holidays which last for five days starting Good Friday and end on Easter Tuesday. Here’s some lovely ideas for Easter home decoration by four Russian bloggers:
