Το Πάσχα στην Ελλάδα είναι φωτεινό, θορυβώδες με πολύ φαγητό και γλέντι…. όλα αυτά ισχύουν και στη Κρήτη σε μεγαλύτερο βαθμό.
Παλιότερο video από τον Αγιο Νικόλαο.
ΠΑΣΧΑ 2007 – στο χωριό Καλέσα
Πασχαλιάτικες μαντινάδες από τον Ζωιδάκη
This is the announcement of the resurrection of Jesus by the Greek Orthodox Church. Some minutes before the Holy Light from the Grave of Jesus is distributed to people. Then the tradition asks for the Jude to be burnt in fire. A couple of days before people collect wood to make the fire and they also make a figure and put it on top of the woods. When the priest says the announcement of the resurrection of Jesus, they start the fire. There are also fireworks and false guns that are used to make lots of noise. See the following videos to have an idea of what is happening.
The first one is from Heraklion this year (2008 ) and the next two are since 2007 in Agios Nikolaos and in Kalesa, a small village.
Everybody is singing, eating and drinking! Here are some Easter local songs
