Celebrating Ash Monday

Taking the day off today to celebrate Ash Monday with family and friends.
Today is the day that we head outdoors for a picnic and fly away our chartaetous (sorry
I don't know the english word for this, if you do pls enlighten me!) and we mostly eat seafood.
In general  this is what happens all over Greece in pictures...

  2. Πριν λίγο γύρισα με τη ζεστή λαγανα στο σπιτι ... Εφτιαξα καφέ ... σερφάρω και τσιμπάω!
    Καλη ημέρα να ζεις Όλγα μου!

  3. Beautiful selection of photos!

    Now let's go out and seize the day!
