What makes a Greek Easter special?

The weather. It is an ideal time of the season! The weather is warming up, the seas are calm, and spring is blooming.

The festive atmosphere. Each day is different during Holy Week. What’s more, the atmosphere is fantastic. On each island in the evening, you will hear the church bells tolling and feel the energy as the locals celebrate.

The traditions. On Good Friday, a candlelit funeral procession takes place in every church. The procession takes place outside, with everyone holding candles. On the night of Holy Saturday, fireworks light up the sky, and the atmosphere becomes festive.

The restaurants open up after midnight. Then, it’s time for the Greek Easter egg-cracking tradition. Each person picks an egg and clinks it against someone else’s egg. The participants say to each other: “Christ has risen!”

The food. Like most Christian holidays, food plays a significant role during Greek Easter. On Easter Sunday, locals roast lamb for hours, bake fragrant bread, and prepare delicious desserts. The aroma permeates the air.

You can even enjoy a traditional Greek Easter dinner aboard your private yacht.
