Press Release & Article Micra Anglia Hotel : Easter in Micra Anglia Boutique Hotel
On Good Wednesday, let’s paint together the Red Eggs, which symbolize Christ’s blood who was crucified by the Romans. On Good Thursday, get ready to smell the inebriating aroma of Lazarakia, the traditional cookies, and the “tsoureki”, traditional brioche-type sweet bread, which we prepare here, in the very kitchen of Micra Anglia, keeping up with the Greek stories which want the flour of the bread to symbolize the up-coming resurrection of Christ. Don’t forget that, although the eggs, the bread and the cookies are getting ready mid-week, they are only to be consumed after Easter Saturday, following the Greek Orthodox Easter Lent custom of not consuming any meat or dairy.
On Good Friday evening, our guests will have the chance to experience the meeting of the three epitaphs in the main square, just a few steps away from Micra Anglia Boutique Hotel. It is an unforgettable experience to live since the epitaphs of the three biggest churches of Chora meet up in the square along with the crowds of the locals and the visitors who have followed them around the alleys of Chora, singing the Praises of the Tomb along the way. After the litany, we are waiting for you back at the hotel to taste together the simple yet delicious Good Friday buffet. On Easter Saturday evening, after experiencing the Resurrection Mass and the fireworks spectacle at Panagia Church or at Theoskepasti Church, we have prepared for you the most traditional menu that includes “magiritsa”, a lamb offal soup.
The Easter festivities in Micra Anglia Boutique Hotel peak on Easter Sunday with the festivities starting early so that you can have the time to get to Stenies village to witness the Maskoula fireworks.
