Food for the dead (3)

  Tsiknopempti, the Thursday of the second week of Greek Carnival (Apokries),  is surrounded with the smells and smokes of grilled meat and burning fat. Since it is believed that  the souls of the dead are set free and wander among the living during the 3 weeks of Apokries, Tsiknopempti is also a day to honor those who cannot be seen.

And the deceased don’t ask for much… They wish just a dish of pilav and boiled meat.
