The best villas to enjoy traditional Easter in Greece

29.03.2023 Destinations

Easter in Greece is a special time of the year. The country comes alive with customs and traditions that have been passed down through generations. One of the most famous Easter customs take place during the Holy Week – the week leading up to Easter Sunday – which is filled with religious rituals. The rituals include the service of Holy Thursday, in which patriarchs of the Orthodox Church wash the feet of their clergy, followed by the Good Friday procession, when the faithful carry a symbolic bier representing Christ’s tomb, the Epitaph.

On the island of Mykonos, they have a different way of commemorating Good Friday. They create a straw effigy of Judas and then burn it in the streets, symbolizing the retribution to the betrayal of Christ. In Skiathos, the locals wake up early on Holy Saturday to witness the Epitaph procession, which is followed by a joyous celebration of the resurrection.

On the island of Corfu, the custom of the Mpotides is still highly prevalent. People gather on the main square of the Old Town and break clay pots to cast away the evil spirits.  On Syros, both Orthodox and Catholics come together to celebrate Easter, with the two religious groups holding joint processions and participating in each other’s festivities. Finally, in Paros, an island in the Cyclades, everyone gathers to watch the impressive Easter Sunday fireworks in Naoussa, known as “mpourlotierides”.
