February 15th Καθαρη Δευτερα

Καθαρη Δευτερα (Clean Monday) is a public holiday in Greece and Cyprus. Eating meat, eggs and dairy products is traditionally forbidden. It is celebrated by having family picnics and the widespread flying of kites. We met with members on Philippapou Hill and enjoyed the festivities with all the other Athenians.
