After Carnival Season: Clean Monday!

Clean Monday is the first day of Lent (signalling the start of spring) and refers to the leaving behind of sinful attitudes and non-fasting foods.

It is a public holiday in Greece where it is celebrated outdoors with consumption of shellfish and other fasting food, a special kind of ofazyme bread called "Lagana" and the custom of flying kites.  It is said that the higher your kite flies, the further away your troubles will be.
