Vasilopita, or Basil’s Pie tradition

In a centuries old tradition, many Orthodox Christians celebrate New Year's Day with a slice of Vasilopita, also known as Basil's Pie, hoping to find the coin tucked inside.  There are several legends regarding the start of the tradition found here and here.  Many of our Greek parishioners celebrate this tradition on New Year's Day.  Photos can be found here.
