Καλή Καθαρά Δευτέρα και καλή Σαρακοστή!/Happy Clean Monday and Happy Lent!!
The first day of Lent is known as Clean Monday. Also known as Orthodox Shrove Monday or Ash Monday. It is called “clean” because it marks the start of the lenten period during which our bodies and spirits are “cleansed” to prepare for accepting the Resurrection.
Clean Monday is a public holiday in Greece, a day of great celebration and traditions. Families take to the beach or countryside for picnics and kite-flying. Children make “Kyra Sarakosti,” (Lady Lent), a paper doll with seven legs to represent the seven weeks of Lent. Every week, a leg is cut off to show how many weeks remain until Easter.
