Eastern Orthodox Easter
GK: This portion of our show is brought to you by The Eastern Orthodox Church.
WOMAN: Oh, no, is it Easter time already? There’s so much I still have to do! Dresses to buy, eggs to dye, candy to purchase! I wish I had another week!
FATHER: Then you get your wish!
WOMAN: Why, Father Alexander, of the Eastern Orthodox Church! What are you doing here?
FATHER: I’m here to tell you about the Eastern Orthodox Church! We are one of the world’s major religious and were Christians, with a twist.
WOMAN: Well, we're kind of satisfied with our present faith.
FATHER: Did you know that because we use the Julian calendar instead of the Gregorian calendar, Easter comes a whole week later?
WOMAN: An extra week to get ready for Easter! That’s terrific!
FATHER: And think of all the bargains you’ll get on chocolate bunnies, decorations and eggs when they all go on sale for half price after regular Easter.
WOMAN: That’s right!
FATHER: Just a few more reasons why you should consider the Eastern Orthodox Church for your religious needs.
GK: The Eastern Orthodox church; we march to the beat of a different calendar.
