Easter in Agios Nikolaos

The Orthodox Easter

Easter in Agios Nikolaos

This is the greatest festival in spring and of the Orthodox world, a movable feast celebrated annually on the first Sunday after the spring equinox, as decided by the First Ecumenical Council of 352 A.D. The Christian Easter has its roots in the Jewish Easter, which was a sequel to the Egyptian festival of "Pissax" meaning "passage", the Festival of the Spring Equinox. This festival was adopted by the Jews during their stay in Egypt and they continued to celebrate it on their return to Palestine on the anniversary of their crossing of the Red Sea.

The village of Mochlos

daily excursion

The village of Mochlos

The heart of the village where all life is concentrating is its quiet bay.
Mochlos is one of the few villages on Crete where you can eat on the seafront without being disturbed by motor traffic. Actually, there is a little road running along the sea but - to the delight of tourists and natives - the inn-keepers use it as extensions to their terraces. It persists as a pedestrian passage way between the tables. Long as it lasts!

Easter on Crete

A brief journal of the Orthodox Easter

Easter on Crete

According to the Christian Orthodox faith, man's journey from birth until death, is at once a crossing and a resurrectional journey through life. Pain cannot be separated from happiness. Both coexist and are mutually understood as a deeper entity. Christ's, the Virgin Mary's and the Saints' lives were an endless journey of sadness and happiness combined.
