Saturday/Sunday, 18/19 April 2009: Greek Orthodox Easter: Easter is the most important holiday of the year in Greece and Greek Orthodox Easter is being celebrated this weekend, a week after ĎWestern Easterí. On the Saturday night everyone goes to church and at midnight the priest announces the resurrection of Chris (Christos Anesti) and people are allowed to light their candles. There are then firework displays in all three main villages on Paxos. Here are some images of last nights church service and fireworks in Loggos. Kalo Pascha!

Wednesday, 25 March 2009: Independence Day: On 25 March 1821 the Greeks raised the Greek flag for the first time over free Greek land as a declaration of their independence from the Ottoman Turks. However, the map of Greece in 1821 was very different from the map of Greece that we know today and the battle for freedom was an extremely long one that wasnít completed until after World War II. Today there are parades and dancing in celebration of Independence Day all over Greece, including Paxos. Unfortunately, the weather wasnít very nice but the parade still took place in Gaios as planned.

Sunday, 1 March 2009: Carnival in Gaios: Today was the start of the two-day celebration that precedes the beginning of Lent. A special party with music was put on in the main square in Gaios for all the children, who dressed up in fancy dress and took over the square. Tomorrow we hope to have some pictures from the celebrations for Clean Monday, the Greek equivalent of Shrove Tuesday.

Friday, 27 February 2009:  Spring is in the Air: Today it really does feel as though Spring is in the air. The birds are all singing and the bees are busy gathering pollen from the myriad of colourful flowers that have sprung up in the last few days. And, once again, the weather is just perfect Ė sunny and wonderfully clear.

Monday, 23 February 2009:  First Signs of Spring: Although itís only a few days since we were in the midst of Winter storms, already the first signs of Spring are starting to appear. In the olive groves the ground beneath the magnificent trees is once again becoming carpeted with verdure and already the first flowers are starting to appear.

Friday, 20 February 2009: Beautiful Winter's Day: At last the recent wind and rain seems to have come to end, and today we have a really beautiful sunny day of the kind we would expect on Paxos during the winter. Itís bitterly cold and the temperature isnít expected to get much above freezing but we have fabulous views across to the snow-capped mountains on the Greek mainland. Itís a real beauty and we just canít imagine anyone wanting to be anywhere else!

Wednesday, 11 February 2009: New Junior School Opens: If youíve visited Paxos in the last couple of years, you may have noticed the large buildings being constructed near the football pitch in Bogdanatika and wondered what they were going to be. Well they were the new infant and junior schools which are now finished, and last Wednesday children from the three junior schools on the island moved in. It wasnít a very nice day but even so they all stood outside for prayers.  The infants moved into their new school a couple of weeks ago and the senior school has been there for several years. So now the infant, junior and senior schools are all on the same site.
