Greek Orthodox Easter is the most revered event on the island, and one that is celebrated with a week of unique traditions leading up to Easter Sunday. As always the hotel will mark Easter in its own special way, and visitors are also welcome to attend church ceremonies across the region. Notable activities during Holy Week include the burning of an effigy of Judas on a bonfire on Easter Saturday after midnight mass, and the traditional yard games of Easter Monday that are organised by rural communities. The Easter Sunday family meal is typically barbecued lamb, and customary baked goods include ‘tsoureki’ (like brioche) and ‘flaounes’ (rich cheese, raisin and mint scones).
