"Easter, the Greek Orthodox Church’s biggest celebration, is celebrated all over Greece with great respect and enthusiasm. Easter celebrations in Corfu are unique in every way. Western European influences, inheritance of the many centuries of Venetian presence in Corfu, are apparent even in the Orthodox celebration.
Corfiots call it “Labri” (Λαμπρή=bright) or “Labria” to express the greatness of the days. From Good Friday and throughout the Easter weekend, Corfu Town is full of special activities with the processions of Epitaphs in Old Town’s small alleys, the pot throwing on Great Saturday morning and the midnight firework spectacle to name a few.
Easter 2014 is celebrated in Greece on the 20th of April and it’s a great opportunity for visitors to combine this especially mystic experience with the spring sun and the unparalleled beauty of the Corfiot countryside."
