Easter in Greece (Pascha) is a whole season, one that for many people already started on Clean Monday (this year, February 19th), a day of kite flying that signals the beginning of Sarakosti – the forty days of fasting to spiritually prepare for Easter. It’s a period that takes us from the last frosts of winter through to the blooming of the lilacs (known as paschalies, as they flower at Easter). The resurrection of nature adds to the sense of anticipation | Kudos Life experiences.
