(Photos) Chicago Elementary School Students Learn Greek Tradition of “Tsougrisma”


One Chicago elementary school got a special cultural treat yesterday when mom, Tia Angelos, visited her son Athan’s first grade class and introduced the tradition of “tsougrisma” or red Easter egg cracking.

Tia explained to the first graders the story of why Greeks dye their eggs red at Easter and explained the tradition of cracking, which one by one each of the students participated in.

Of course, no Easter explanation would be complete without traditional Greek koulourakia and tsoureki, which she shared with the class.
