Updated: Jun 17, 2020

Botides is one of Corfu Easter celebrations that takes place on the day of the "Early Resurrection", during which the Corfiotes throw down large clay pots (named botides - Corfu Easter Pot Throwing) to smash on the street pavement. The pots have a narrow spout and two handles on the side, they are tied with red ribbons and they are filled with water, while the balconies and windows of the houses in the old town are decorated with a red cloth.
