Easter

During the Easter week, the Lerian house is a 'work factory' of preparation for the Greek housewife. Biscuits, cakes, cheese pies, hardboiled eggs coloured with the traditional red dye - all prepared for the great day of Saturday and Sunday, the Resurrection Day. This feasting is the culmination of the holy week of fasting. During the Easter week the children of the Island go to the countryside collecting lavender to spread over the streets of the main square of Platanos where the four parishes of the city gather on Good Friday night to carry the Epitaph (the Arch carrying the icon of Jesus) through the surrounding neighbourhoods. The next morning, the Lerian people celebrate the first resurrection and take their first communion after fasting. The main celebration comes at midnight when the whole island congregates at the churches to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, letting off firecrackers and burning the effigy of Judas. At the end of the religious service, people enter the churches to light their candles from the candle of the priest (the holy light) and bring it home where the family table is laid with all the traditional Easter food. Easter Sunday is the big celebration day all over Greece, feasting continues with families roasting whole lambs on spits out-of-doors.
