    Clean Monday

    Monday Feb 19
    18:00 - 19:00 EET

    Celebrate Clean Monday at the Anoghi community center 10 am onwards

    and at the Kioni community center 

    This first day of Great Lent is called 'Clean Monday' because Christians should begin the holy season with 'clean hearts and good intentions.' It is also because the season of Lent is regarded as a time for when Christians should clean up their spiritual house, coming to terms with their lives and rededicating themselves to a more holy and righteous way of living.

    Clean Monday is a day of strict fasting. Christians are not allowed to eat from midnight to noon and can have no meat at all. Christians are also expected to spend extra time praying during the day and reading from the Bible.

    Because Clean Monday is also considered to mark the first day of spring, Greeks tend to celebrate it with outdoor activities and picnics rather than fasting and prayer. These activites are often called 'koulouma'.

    Traditional foods include olives, octopus, and shrimp. In addition to picnics, outdoor activities used to celebrate the day include flying kites, dancing, music, etc.
