halloweenDuring Halloween many people of the island were getting dressed for the carnival and asking housewives for figs and walnuts, telling them that if they gave them the treats they wouldn’t break the floorboards. Those days the most popular meals were gorgovrasto and manti. On last Sunday before Halloween they were cooking noodles with mint and cheese, “tyrnopites”, custard and “athotyropites”. On Ash Monday most people were starting fasting.
