The tradition to share a meal with deceased loved ones lives in many Orthodox Christian countries, however, Georgia takes it to a different level. Here, it is a tradition deeply felt and lived through several times during the year, being especially popular on the Orthodox Easter day. If you go to a cemetery at this time you will see families having picnics and drinking wine at the graves and celebrating the holiday with much passion.
