Easter is more important to Greek people than
Christmas - so expect an exciting 'religious' time.
It all starts with midnight
mass (on the Saturday). We go to our nearby Church at Loustri. The locals and a few tourists
are outside with candles - even the non religious are surely moved.
Corfu Town explodes with pot smashing and fireworks -
and of course the usual shotgun being set off!
Easter morning is spent
preparing the feast! Spit roasted goat, lamb and wild boar are on the menu.
Our local Priest often comes
down to the Taverna - he says he can smell the cooking! After joining us for a meal, he gives the Taverna a quick blessing!

Corfu getting Around
Hire a car, take a bus or use a local taxi, but renting a motor boat can be the experience of your Corfu holiday.
What to See and Visit

Last year's Greek Easter (2003),
was on Sunday the 27th of April. This Year's is the same
as the UK.
