Students make kites for Kathara Deftera (Clean Monday)
- Photos (1)
Students at Aristotle Preschool and Kindergarten continued the Greek tradition of making kites in preparation for Kathara Deftera (Clean Monday) which is the first day of Lent for Greek-Orthodox Christians.
Students used their creativity to decorate their paper kites. The tradition in Greece is for adults and children on this day to commemorate the beginning of Lent with flying kites. Families, young and old, on Kathara Deftera eat Lenten special foods including Lagana, a yeastless bread. Families also attend Great Compline Service in church on this day. The Lenten fast for Greek-Orthodox Christians continues for 40 days until Easter.
