I like Gyros, that's lamb meat right? those chops don't look that appetizing raw like that but i'm sure they taste better after they've been grilled and loaded down with BBQ sauce.

There is nothing, I repeat NOTHING on the FACE OF THE EARTH, that tastes as good as Lamb Chops cooked over an outdoor fire or on an outdoor grill. Me and some buddies had a cookout one time, and the night before, we bought some Lamb Chops and marinated them in Italian salad dressing until the next morning and then wrapped them in aluminum foil and threw them on the barbie. When we unwrapped those succulent morsels, we all about died and went to heaven just from the experience. It was indescribably good. I kid you not. Happy Easter!

The sight of raw meat didn't bother me brother. But it was probably a real eye-opener for the vegetarians on the site.

P.S.: If you Greeks cook stuff like this, I HAVE GOT to get to Greece someday!

What I find funny is that many people believe that Christmas is the most important Christian holiday. I had a friend once who studied some kind of comperative religious science and even he believed that.
Probably because Christmas is bigger in terms of "party".

Easter certainly is important, but I have to say I enjoy Christmas a lot more. The images of Christmas are more peaceful and serene, Baby Jesus in the manger surrounded by quiet contented animals, the three wise men,
angels telling us to "be of good cheer" and good food, family and a peaceful silent night, and since it takes place in winter, a fresh blanket of snow, with a dark star dappled sky can really accentuate the peaceful aspect of Christmas. Easter for me has always been more somber and sober and more a time for inner self examination and reflection. To me, it's always been a more dutiful and responsibility oriented holiday. Christmas on the other hand is a day of rejoicing and gladness, but not necessarily partying, not to me at any rate. Just an observation, not an argument.

I LOVE goat chops, there's a resteraunt in my hometown called "Dino the Greek Hillbilly's Restaurant" and one of the items on his menu is goat chops. First time I had them... oh wow. Way better than some of the crap food that I've had here. These plus a tall glass of Guinness for me... you're looking at a good day.

Say jtrek, hows about I come on over there?

Well said, Monsieur. The Christmas atmosphere is definitely more peaceful and contemplative and especially has a larger impact upon oneself as a child than Easter. And the Christmas story is also more appropriate for little children than the Passion.

In lack of finding an appropriate word, I wanted to refer with "party" to the general activity which is much larger at and before Christmas than at Easter.
