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;
Sorry I do not have any photos from last night,
I stayed home ;o(
Here is one of, for me, the best Easterphotos
I have taken;
Easter Saturday night outside the Panagia tou Papameletiou church
in Giftorema in 2004. A magic moment!
At Eastertime the blossom is at its best,
and this year I feel it is better than ever!
Tonight, Saturday, we will eat our easter soup
at Ta Kimata, as usual and all night we will say;
(Hilser man hverandre med frem til Påskeaften kveld)
(Is the greeting the days before Saturday night!)
|Xristus er oppstanden!
(Sier man ved midnatt påskeaften)
|Xristos is risen!
(one says after midnight at Easter Saturday)
(is the answer)
Have to get a new photo where Ira is with us as well!
Sunday the biggest day of the year where
thousands of kids and lambs will be grilled;
The big lent is over and time to celebrate!
