Clean Monday

Today was Clean Monday or Kathara Deutera in Greek. It sees the start of the Greek Orthodox Lent and is marked by many different traditions. The most visible one is people flying kites, though this year the lack of strong winds meant that most of the them, at least in my neighbourhood, remained stubbornly grounded.

today i was told that clean monday is the day one takes a bath. i kid you not.

may weddings were decorated with flowers because the bath was beginning to lose its effect and needed a boost.
