CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – The Greek community celebrated Greek Easter on Sunday. Students at MIT held festivities.
The Hellenic Students’ Association hosted its annual Greek Easter feast. The celebration has been three days in the making, according to MIT’s Hellenic Students’ Association Vice President Aristeidis Karalis.
“The most important tradition of Greek Easter is the roasted lambs on the spit. And as you can see down there, we actually have six lambs roasting right now,” Karalis said.
Roasting began at 5 a.m. Sunday.
The event is mostly for MIT students, both Greek and non-Greek.
“This is open as a celebration in general to all students,” Karalis said. “And it’s a way to meet different cultures and a way to get to know each other.”
