    Excuse me...but it's a new year's bread/cake with a coin in it. Who ever gets the piece with the coin is considered to have good luck through out the new year.

    Excuse me...but no. You don't use a penny you use a coin the size of a quarter (at least).

    excuse me assuming a quarter is big like my 50 cent size lol remember iam not U S citizen i will look up the size lol

    very intresting idea

    The Greek word Vasilopita is directly translated as “Sweet Bread of Basil”. When the Vasilopita is prepared, a coin is baked into the ingredients. Sweet flavoring is added to the bread which symbolize the sweetness and joy of life everlasting. It also symbolizes the hope that the New Year will be filled with the sweetness of life, liberty, health, and happiness for all who participate in the Vasilopita Observance.

    thx a lot for explaining to me

    excuse me its such a wonderful tradition i think iam try it this year thx so much

    The Vasilopita is a Beautiful Tradition, and a custom which should not be neglected by Greek Orthodox Christians as should perhaps be adopted by all Christians in the Western world. It is such a wonderful way to begin each New Year which God has given to the world. If you have been holding the observance in your home, Congratulations and Please
    continue to do so! If you have not, Please start and keep this Glorious Family Tradition!
