“My mom used to say that Greek Easter was later because then you get stuff cheaper”

"My mom used to say that Greek Easter was later because then you get stuff cheaper” is a quote by American actress and comedian Amy Sedaris that has been printed on many images. Sedaris was raised by a Protestant mother and a Greek Orthodox father.

Sedaris said the quote as a guest on television’s Late Show with David Letterman on April 27, 2005:

“But Easter, because I’m Greek Orthodox, we celebrate Easter later because of the old calendar—(yawns like she’s bored) I know—and so Greek Easter is May 1st. My mom used to say that Greek Easter was later because then you get stuff cheaper.”
