Greek Carnival

Carnival time is a huge celebration in Greece and Cyprus. It starts on January 19 and continues for 2 months, culminating in the Grand Parade on the last Sunday. The day after, Monday, is Kathara Devtera (Clean Monday) when everyone goes on a picnic and to fly kites. After that, there is 50 days of fasting until Greek Easter.

Here is a selection of the best Greek Carnival videos.

      I love the one of the Patra Carnival best – but the “Ragoutsaria” and the Goat Dance are wicked :)
