RELIGIOUS FESTIVALS of GREECE

RHODES island

 

       Greek Orthodox Easter is the most important Festival of the Year .

The High point is the Easter Mass, which is celebrated at midnight on Ester Saturday -Sunday ,where people light a candle in the church and carry it home and make a sign of cross from the smoke of the candle out side their door.

 

     The candles and bright lights end the period of mourning and are  lit from holy candles in church

     The locals then great each other the words "Christos Anesti" which means Christ is risen

 

    They end the fast, and usually dine on special soup made out of sheep's  entrails    an acquired taste 'They also eat eggs which have been coloured  with red  food colouring, but before they tap them together with someone else's egg, if yours  does not break this is meant to be a sing of good luck.
