Well , one month after the Catholics it's time for our Easter . Very late this year but with summer temperatures and swimming at the beach ! This combination is the best spring break ever :)
Easter is a very big celebration here in Greece and the most important too .
All this holy week people are busy . Baking Easter cakes , painting eggs , whitening their yards , preparing the Easter Lamb .....
Today there is the Epitaph . When it is getting dark every Church brings out the Epitaph , which is decorated with flowers . People are following with candles , singing the Hymns .
Tommorow at Midnight we all go to church , waiting for the holy light . Eveyone has large candles and we are bringing this light to our homes . The children are getting decorated candles from their Godfathers/mothers and also a pair of shoes which is tradition . After Church we are all eating soup and clink our eggs for good luck .
On Sunday you will smell everywhere Lamb . The Lamb is on a spit which is also tradition and there is a lot of wine , dancing and chatting !
