Clean Monday (KATHARI DEFTERA) is the beginning of the great Lent before the Greek Easter.
Because Clean Monday is also traditionaly considered to mark the first day of spring, we tend to celebrate it with picnics or going out at a local taverna. These activites are called 'koulouma'.
Traditional foods include olives, octopus, and shrimp. In addition to picnics, outdoor activities used to celebrate the day include flying kites, dancing, music, etc.
There were not only kites flying but also a paramotor and a dellta-plane. !
In Arillas Beach the winter swimmers met today to celebrate their hobby , the fans of winter swimming gather on the beautiful beach of Arillas , where they cut the New Year cake of their (unofficial) club. that was an informal meeting from the local people who dare to swim all year round. we do hope that this will be repeated every year on a specific day by all-weather conditions.
Merry Xmas and Happy New Year, From all the people of Arillas. We hope you and your families are all well!! thank you for being such good friends with Arillas.
See you Soon!!
The feast day of the Assumption of Mary, also known as Assumption Day, is the principal feast day of the Virgin Mother Mary, according to Christian tradition. It is celebrated annually on August 15 . So there is great Long-weekend for another great "Bank Holiday".
This Weekend is the most poppular of the Season for Arillas as our beach is very well known to the locals of Corfu island.
A windy day in Arillas beach can be a great oportunity for our little boys and girls as well as the older "sportsmen" of Arillas. The North-west wind ( MAISTRO) can be very strong and can create larger waves that are just enough for body boards, skimboard, and small young surfers.
