Holy Friday – Megali Pareskevi ...

The mourning bell will ring ...

It reminds us of the special meaning of the day, shops and businesses normaly close from midday.

Tries Hieraches church will be very busy as smartly dressed locals, visit to view the decorated Epitaphos, which has been prepared for tonight's candle lit procession.

The coffee shops, and bars will be full, and the tavernas will be serving just fish and shellfish dishes. Ouzo Tsipouro and coffee, are the drinks of the day.

In Skiathos they follow the old tradition, and its magic to be here with your neighbours, walking the town tonight, in a candlelit procession shortly after 4am ....
