Today during my English lesson I showed the girls how to make Kyra Sarakosti or “Lady Lent” which is a greek tradition. You make her on Clean Monday, out of paper or dough. Since I wasnt about to take over the poor family’s kitchen I opted for paper! She has no mouth because she is fasting and she has seven legs, representing the number of weeks in Lent. Every week leading up to Easter you remove a leg! Here she is in all her glory! I got so excited that tomorrow i’ll make my own out of dough to hang in my kitchen.
