Sabella is a greek girl who lives in a modest city apartment. Like most Greek families, she lives with her extended family: her aunt, uncle, grandparents, and nuclear family.
The family goes to church to celebrate Easter. They are Christian orthodox, the main religion in Greece. They wear traditional long dresses and formal-outfits to church.
Easter is here!
Sabella loves Easter traditions. They decided to bake traditional buns, their mom sets up for traditions later at night. It is 7 o'clock at night.
I love baking traditional bun after church, for Easter.
Mom frantically looked for fireworks for their special midnight Easter tradition. Finally, mom realized that they forgot to stock up after last year.
When mom told Sabella and her brother, Alexander, about the lack of fireworks Sabella got frantic. Holiday traditions are very important to Greek families. Sabella decided she must go out to find fireworks for her family.
Oh no! We do this tradition every year.
Sabella ran out the door and through the city desperately looking for a place that might not be sold out of fireworks, as it is a common Easter tradition.
