Holy Friday – Megali Pareskevi ...

Καλημέρα σας  Καλή Ανάσταση ...

Good Morning all, Good Resurrection ...

Head down to the church, or up to the Monastery, the Epitaphos has been decorated ...

Evagelistria Epitaphos
Panagia Limania Epitaphos

The mourning bell will start its solumn pealing in the next few hours. All work must have stopped by midday all cleaning completed, and certainly no hammering of nails ...

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 tonights candle lit procession.

The coffee shops and bars will be full, and the ouzerias, and tavernas serving just fish and shellfish dishes today, If you have never tried a Skiathos oyster, or sea anemones, they will be freely available today.

Tsipouro and coffee are the drinks of the day. However the weather forecast is not promising, for the day and nights activities on this holy day...

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

Kαλό Πάσχα!
