But fist of all, Easter is a great Orthodox holiday for people in Santorini.
Many Easter customs have been preserved for many years.
The Easter atmosphere and customs in combination with the shining Spring, makes Easter in santorini an experience to live!
- The red textiles at the balconies every Maundy Thursday,
- the smell of "tsoureki" and "melitinia" a local dessert especially cooked for Easter,
- the streets of Pyrgos (a village on the mountain) lighten by thousands of oil-lamps on Good Friday, and
- the meeting of the two Epitaphs, in the central square of Fira
are only a sample.
