The Greek Orthodox Easter celebration, I would love to go experience this some day! Perhaps this should also go on my #bucketlist pin board.

Easter in Amorgos. Amorgos (Greek: Αμοργός) is the easternmost island of the Greek Cyclades island group.

One of the best times to visit the island of #Corfu is Easter week, when the town hosts the most splendid, ceremonial and melodic celebrations in the country, with the city’s philharmonics in full action.  One of the highlights is the dropping of "botides" – ceramic pots full of water – from upper-story windows onto the cobblestone streets of the island on Holy Saturday morning after the first Resurrection service.

Arachova - Greek Easter (Pascha), always associated with the first signs of Spring, is definitely my favourite Greek holiday. For the Greeks it’s a most sacred holiday filled with deeply-rooted religious ceremonies and many traditional festivities enjoyed with family and friends.
