Tsiknopempti

or ‘smoke Thursday’ is all about eating meat and more meat as a final goodbye to the fasting period that commences after ‘Clean Monday’. In the Greek Orthodox tradition fasting on Wednesday and Friday is important, therefore Thursday is the best day to celebrate Tsiknopempti and is 11 days prior to Clean Monday. Depending on the weather meat is grilled on the BBQ at home or outside taverna’s and obviously accompanied by plenty of alcohol.
