Experience Clean Monday in Athens
Clean Monday in the Orthodox religion this year falls on Monday, February 19, and marks the beginning of the 48 day Lenten period before Easter and the end of Carnival period. For some, it is a welcome change from excess and worldly pleasures and a chance to direct one’s attention inwards. To cleanse and purify the body as well as the spirit, hence the name, “Clean Monday”.
