Κάλαντα του Λαζάρου - Carols of Lazarus

On Lazarus Saturday (Σάββατο του Λαζάρου) children sing carols of Lazarus.

This is the Saturday before Palm Sunday (Κυριακή των Βαϊων), marking the beginning of Holy Week. 

"On Lazarus Saturday, we bake sweet spiced breads called 'Lazarakia'. They are shaped like a man with his arms folded and wrapped in burial cloths. This symbolises when Jesus Christ raised Lazarus from the dead after four days in the tomb."
