Corfu, Easter Saturday: Pot-Throwing after the Rain

This posting is still relevant

Metro's "weird" Easter traditions

A great photo from corfunewsit blog

Watched the live stream Corfu Channel broadcast (rain stopped the procession of the Epitaphios and Saint Spyridon at 9.30am Greek time, 7.30am UK time- but wind bands continued to play). Pot-throwing and "Proti Anastasi" at 11am Greek time (9am UK time).

My first Corfiot Easter:

"Η παράδοση θέλει το λαό μας να ονομάζει την Ανάσταση "Λαμπρή". Γιατί έχει μέσα στην ψυχή του ο λαός μας το φως, την αισιοδοξία και τη δύναμη.

Και είναι αυτό το φως που μας κρατάει όρθιους. Και είναι αυτό το φως που θα βγάλει όλους τους Έλληνες νικητές. Χριστός Ανέστη σε όλους".
