Thanks for the photos Lula. They seem like a close family, I'm sure Annemarie is getting a lot of support. It will be hard when they all leave, but she still will have Nick and Tatiana in Athens.

it's a tradition in Balkan countries, I think in Serbia they're called "Panajia" (=Παναγία, Mother of Jesus)

And they're also delicious!

In Tomanian is called “coliva”. It’s made out of cooked wheat, sugar, walnuts, lemon zest, rhum and rose water. For all the memorial services for a deceased, the Orthdox church needs coliva, wine and the candle.
During the service there is a moment when all the relatives of the remembered one lift the platter with the coliva and carefully swing it up and down singing “forever remembered”. It gives me goosebumps just writing this, ever since I was a small child this swinging and the song makes me fell we are all united in the grief and love for those who have left.

My family never puts sugar in them, it’s to not sweeten the Death to come again in the same house or something, Prejudice but we also offer bread, hallumi cheese, black olives coffee and wine. I heard somewhere that coliva is actually a full meal in nutritional value.
@onar I thought they originally come from ancient Greece no?

We, too, offer a full meal for a lot of people, the church is the one that only needs coliva wine and candle.

Yes, but I don't know the exact (ancient) recipe. A ancient greek custom was also the family grathering and eating right above the grave. I think some Greeks from Pontos area still keep this tradition, the rest of us just offer a meal with fish as main course after the funeral.

Koliva on its own, yes, it is a full meal, super nutritional.

Picnics at the family cemetery were not uncommon in 19th century America.

I love hearing about all the different customs.

Today marks the one year anniversary of Constantine's death.

The photos I saw on Instagram showed that Anne-Marie, Sofia, Irene, Pavlos, Alexia, Nikolaos&Tatiana, Philippos&Nina and Elena were all in Greece.

I can't believe it's been a year already. I do appreciate that Pavlos isn't running around calling himself King like some other deposed royal do when the last monarch passes. Has he been spending more time in Greece like it was suggested he would after his father's death?
