The beginning of the fast was done the right way this year at my university thanks to SHA. They organised to bring lagana, tamara, halva and bread sticks for all SHA members as well as anyone that was was there during the lunch break. Every year we eat these delicious foods and treats on clean Monday, as preparation for the next forty days of fasting before Easter.
SHA created a great atmosphere and vibe by bringing speakers to play Greek music, and went around the lunch area encouraging people to join us as we enjoyed the food and the company. It was a true representation of the Hellenes in SA as we brought and instant “kefi” and welcomed everyone that wanted to join us with open arms.
