Every house does a BBQ and the air is full of the smells of roasting pork and other meats in preperation for fasting.
Cyprus celebrates in a lot of ways before lent starts for easter we have a day called green Monday where you have a family day at the beach with sea food bbq’s
We fast during lent but we still eat lol just restrictions on what days you can’t eat certain things most poeple ignore this woops
Easter is a massive party fireworks and yes mor bbq usually a whole sheep or goat.
Christmas is the same as the uk really nothing too different except we have the best Christmas biscuits. Although all the soldiers on national service go to the sea and the bishop throws a cross in an all the soldiers swim to get it
