Serbian Easter - Listening Exercise

I am sure you are all looking forward to Orthodox Easter on Sunday :) If you are wondering why Orthodox Easter falls on a different day, here comes an explanation.

Both Orthodox Easter and Easter Sunday commemorate the resurrection of Jesus, however they are celebrated on different dates, as they are based on two different calendars. Orthodox churches in some countries continue to use the Julian calendar, for example in Russia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Georgia, Ukraine, and the Greek Old Calendarists  base their Easter date on the Julian calendar rather than the Gregorian Calendar that is used in Britain. As with Easter in Britain, Orthodox Easter observers continue fasting through Holy Week, ending their fast on Orthodox Easter Sunday.

Since this blog is dedicated to language learning, let's focus on  a few fresh videos about Easter in this region and diaspora, with authentic language. For the previous years' blog posts on this topic, check out this link.
