Spend Green Monday in the woods
This weekend is bound to be an eventful one, with the carnival just around the corner and festivities popping up left, right and centre. The celebrations are set to continue early next week as Green Monday arrives, marking the official start of the Easter fasting period.
After two days of partying and the heavy meat consumption that goes down on Tsiknopempti, the veggie cleansing of Green Monday comes to save the day. Beware, though, not to overdo it with bread and sugar (or indeed the fish dishes which are also permissible), and to fill your picnic basket with vegetables and greens.
