What to do in Greece in May

May in Greece is warm, sometimes even hot, with low to moderate prices. The month kicks off with May Day, a national holiday which is commemorated with parades and other festivities. This coincides with the Feast of the Flowers, a celebration of spring flowers which gets its roots from ancient festivals of the goddess Demeter. Another ancient custom practiced during this month is Anastenaria, which is practiced in Aghia Eleni and Langada. The event includes processions, music and dancing, an animal sacrifice, and finally, the traditional fire-walking ritual. In Rhodes, the last few weeks of the month will see the city filled up with flowers in celebration of the annual flower festival.
