Monday Of Lent Kathari Deftera - Clean Monday

0 Reviews

Clean Monday brings to an end the Carnival celebrations that take place for around one month throughout the country in the time period leading up to the beginning of Lent. 

Food is also an important part of the Clean Monday celebration as Greeks participate in the traditional Orthodox Lent which forbids the consumption of meat, fish, eggs and dairy products.

Most households celebrate the beginning of Lent with a spread of shellfish, octopus, and taramasalata which is a traditional dip made from salted roe, breadcrumbs, lemon, and oil which goes great with the special laguna bread that is also consumed on Clean Monday.
