On Clean Monday families gather with their kids and friends to fly kites and savor a menu of traditional dishes.

Greeks usually eat particular types of seafood on Clean Monday, such as octopus, squid, mussels and shrimp; an array of pickled vegetables, especially pickled small green peppers, carrots and cauliflower, olives, and dips that seem especially made for the day’s unique flatbread, lagana.
