Overview of festivals and celebrations in Greece
One of the most joyful holidays is Apokries, which lasts about two weeks and ends before the Great Lent. During this time, the Greeks cook a variety of meat dishes, which are mostly of pork, and treat relatives and friends. After the feast, the Greeks dress up in costumes and go to the main square, where they continue to drink wine and have fun. The holiday ends with a grand carnival. One of the most spectacular feasts is the carnival in the city of Patras on the Peloponnese Peninsula. During the event, spectators can enjoy the procession of chariots. The festival ends with the burning of the carnival king. The dates of carnivals vary depending on the date of Easter. They begin about 2 weeks before this holiday.
