Today is known as Lazarus Saturday in the Orthodox Christian Church (Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox etc.)
It is the day before Palm Sunday which is the beginning of Holy Week. Today celebrates the miracle of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. This shows His divine power and foreshadows His own resurrection at Pascha (Easter) at the end of Holy Week.
It is a Greek tradition to bake mini, sweet loaves of bread called Lazarakia (Lazarus Men) today.
So in the Saturday Spotlight this week is my post from last year all about baking our Lazarakia:
