Athens in February:
GREEK CARNIVAL / HALLOWEEN

Halloween in Greece is the three weeks before Clean Monday, when Lent begins, the most important period of fasting in the Orthodox Christian church calendar, which prepares Christians for the biggest holiday in the church calendar, Easter. . On these days, the custom of feasting, entertainment and "disguising" takes place, which has its roots in the "Lupercalia" and "Saturnalia" festivals, in honor of Saturn, and in the ancient "Dionysian festivals" of the Greeks, where the People used to dress up, dance, sing while drinking wine and the merriment finally culminated in honor of Dionysus. In modern Greece, the carnival is celebrated everywhere with masquerades, dances, feasts, satire and various special customs in each place. It gives us the opportunity to go wild, drink a lot of wine and do countless pranks..

Clean Monday

Clean Monday, also known as Pure Monday, Ash Monday, Monday of Lent or Green Monday. Clean Monday was so named because Christians are "cleansed" spiritually and physically. It is a day of fasting but also a day of rest for Christians. The fast lasts 40 days, which were the same as the days of Christ fasting in the desert. It is celebrated 48 days before the Sunday of the Resurrection of Christ, the Christian Easter. Clean Monday means the end of Carnival and for the Orthodox Church is the first day of Lent. In other words, Clean Monday was so named by strictly religious associations because housewives cleaned their pots of grease, declaring the intention of every household to observe Lent. On Clean Monday, we seek out nature to celebrate the arrival of Spring, fly kites and enjoy traditional meals. Also, Clean Monday, in the wake of Halloween, is accompanied by a feast. According to tradition, wine is allowed for indulgence and escape from everyday life, just before the introversion of the ascetic. Also, in Greece, flying a kite is part of the customs of Clean Monday, specifically its outdoor celebration - the so-called koulouma.
