Holy Week in Christianity is the week immediately before Easter. Is the last week of the 50 days Lent that leads to Easter Sunday and the resurrection of Jesus Christ (of our souls, dreams and spirits)!
This year the Love Floris’ ladies spent it in the Greek islands! Here are some highlights of our great trip and some of our traditions:
Easter eggs dyed red on Good Thursday “Maundy Thursday” symbolize the blood of Christ. They are dyed in a big pot and then shined with olive oil. Following the Easter Tradition , on Holy Saturday’s midnight people in pairs hold an egg in their hand and hit it to their partners’s one to break it, before peeling them off to eat them! Saying at the exact moment of the “crush” that Jesus has resurrected!
Easter sweet cookies /(kulurakia)! A unique taste for both the eyes and the mouth! Can be offered in every house, accompanying Greek coffee or sweetening breakfast time!
Spending “Good Friday” at Prirgos in Santorini was an unforgettable experience. The mourning day of Jesus crucifixion commemorated with fires lit in metal baskets decorating the ledges of every house, offering magnificent view in the evening. The Love Floris’ ladies pay their respect to the icon of the crucified Jesus, felt the smelling surroundings of the Epitaph lilacs in the church. Afterwards tasted traditional pastry “melitini”, in a cozy (and reminding old times) local café at Kasteli, with the personal touch of Ms. Nafsika Lagada.
