Easter and holy week

For the Greek Orthodox Church Easter is the most important feast. Some of the most beautiful songs from the Easter liturgy are already sung during the holy week before Easter. On the morning of Holy Saturday, the "Judas", a scarecrow made of straw and old clothes, is led through the village on a donkey. People laugh at them and hand out "Kaltsounia" (cheesecake) and candy. The scarecrow is burned in a big fire at midnight to symbolize the cruel fate of the traitor. At the end of the fair, the Association for Culture of Vamos serves free food and wine to the villagers. It is at the same time the end of the 40-day fasting period.

Easter Sunday is the most important date in the Greek Orthodox church calendar, a day of merriment and celebration, with lots of wine, dancing and singing. In all Greece on this day a lamb grilled on a spit is eaten. In Crete it is often roasted in the oven over grapevine branches.

In addition to the well-known factors such as upbringing, biography or genes, which have an influence on the personality, another element is added here: the temperament.

Translated into everyday life, this means that we are thinkers, feelers or doers – and experience the world accordingly.
