It is a wonderful little scene, which you recreated so well. I learn something new every day in AM3 - never knew the Orthodox church celebrated Easter at a different time to the others in the Christian calendar.

@Curly: Yes, the Orthodox Church considers the (old) Julian Calendar, and not the (new) Gregorian Calendar, that was established by Pope Gregory XIII, and that's because the new calendar causes the order of events to be altered and could cause the Easter to fall on the same day with Jewish Passover, in some years, while the Orthodox Easter will always be after Passover. More info HERE , if you are interested Thanks much Curly
