Today is Easter Sunday in the Eastern Orthodox Church and here is a photo that I took on the Holy Friday in Crystal Palace, London.
Father George of the St Constantine & St Helen Church leads the congregation through the streets around the church as Christ’s Epitaph bedecked in fresh flowers is carried by worshippers.
Everybody should try and witness Easter week in Greece at least once, even if you are not particularly religious.
It is a marvellous & unique experience, a mix of mourning, remembrance, reverence, gratitude and great celebration, followed by much feasting & revelry on Easter Sunday.
I have experienced it in Rhodes, Spetses, Santorini & Athens and it is truly memorable. Read more about what you can expect to see on the Why Athens site.
