"Kathari Deftera"- Shrove Monday is a traditional feast that declares the end of the carnival period (this year is celebrated on March 18 ) .In Galaxidi (West Greece) the celebration has a unique color and is very spectacular.
Acturally it is a colored "Flour - war " among groups near the sea ,called "alevromoutzouromata" !  
It is said that the custom has been introduced by sailors very long time ago. 

Galaxidi is a beautiful city ,a popular touristic destination in a short distance from Delphi ancient oracle installations .
