Festivals and fairs (16)

Carnival

GALAXIDI (Small town) PARNASSOS

Flour Smudging

On Shrove Monday in Galaxidi the residents and the visitors go to the market, where “moutzouroma” and ”alevroma” take place. That is, people throw at each other soot (moutzouroma) and flour (alevroma). The beach becomes a battle field. There are clouds of flour and dense clouds of soot. It is a very old custom. Perhaps it dates back to the Byzantine era, that the clowns of the hippodromes colored their faces. It started becoming very popular in 1840 as a farewell event.
