Easter – the biggest holiday and celebration in Greece
(some might say that the 15th of August is bigger)
– a must for all “GrekoFile” – friends of Greece,
but most of all a celebration where
more or less all Greeks participate.

I just had to borrow Costa Andreos Easterphoto 2017!

Do you know that here in Greece there is great fireworks at midningt on Easter eve, just like NewYearsEve in Norway? It came to a surprise to a Norwegian friend at her first Easter here, she thought it distroyed the athmosphere! But it is a tradition, – ti na kanoume?

Looking back to Good Friday 2007;

and this year I feel it is better than ever!

at Ta Kimata, as usual and all night we will say;
