The Greek Easter candle know as a lambada is the traditional decorated candle held on Holy Saturday before Orthodox Easter (Anastasi).
The candle is brought to the church service unlit. At midnight, the church goes dark symbolizing Christ’s death. Then, one by one, the Paschal candles are lit throughout the church symbolizing the resurrection and bringing the light of Jesus to all.
It is customary for Godparents to gift an Easter lambada to their Godchild.
Our lambadas are hand dipped in a swirl of wax and decorated by me in my small home studio.
The candle is adorned with a clay cross (also made by me), a gold tone cross, and ribbon.
Done in the traditional Greek blue & white, or pale pink, bright pink or gold. I also can customize a candle per request.
Candles are 12” long.
First time ordering from this market. I had looked around for a unique Lambada. I came across the story of the owner making these candles with her granddaughter which was touching. For the price I figured I would give it a try. Upon delivery the box was gift giving ready beyond compare. Equally as exceptional was the lambada itself! The picture is only half the story and the real thing is beautiful. I’m so happy I gave a small business an opportunity. Thank you
