Greek Easter

8 April 2018

Easter also called Pascha or resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the passion of Christ, preceded by lent (or great lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.

The week before Easter is called Holy Week, and it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Maundy and last supper, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Good Friday is an eminently mournful day that commemorates the passion of Christ in all of Greece.

 

Even the most remote churches honor the tradition of the Epitaph filling the atmosphere with piety and devoutness. In every Greek city, village or island, the Passion of Christ is revived through different traditions.

From the early morning hours in all the Greek churches, the Epitaph, decorated with flowers, is ready to receive the body of Jesus. In most areas, the epitaph procession begins around 9pm.
