Seafood features prominently on Shrove Monday

Seafood will figure prominently on dinner tables on “Shrove Monday”, better known in Greece as “Clean Monday”, March 7, 2011. The religious holiday marks the first day of the “Great Lent”, and often considered as the unofficial beginning of spring in the east Mediterranean country. Family picnics replete with Lenten meals, kite-flying and an array of local traditions and feasts take place throughout Greece and Cyprus, although a frigid cold front and even snow in many regions is forecast both Sunday and Monday.
