Epiphany

On Theophany Day housewives continue to make, even today, the traditional dumplings known as “loukoumades” or “xerotiana” so that they can enjoy them with their families. Next, they actually take some dumplings, some pieces of pork tenderloin and sausages and throw them on the roofs of the houses so that the goblins will eat and go away. 

Up until a few years ago, after the end of the mass, the village priest would go around the village and, accompanied by two children who would carry a bucket full of holy water and the God-given holy light, he would spray each house with holy water thus bringing the holy light in every house.
