Green Monday is a day to relax outdoors, socialize with family, friends, and neighbors and eat fresh food with an amazing taste,(in Greek known as Kathara deftera), also known as Green Monday, is the first day of lent for the Greek Orthdox – a period which lasts 40 days till Easter.

Fasting foods – vegetables, fruit and a special type of sesame bread “lagana” are eaten along with octopus and shellfish. Camping places, parks or the beach to have their lunch. Some of the people spend all day in nature eating food, playing games like ‘milo’, flying the kites, socializing with others and relaxing.

Usually, the village mayors or city mayors organize some events like dancing and singing traditional songs or playing traditional games and free food for people.

Another tradition on Green Monday is kite flying and, whether store-bought or homemade, they are usually brightly decorated, the majority being in the shape of a pentagon. The kites are usually decorated with a favorite football teams symbol or just different color mixtures.

Also, mayors from cities and villages around Cyprus organize traditional dancing, singing, and games along with free food.
