Epiphany Day (Public Holiday) 2018

Religious sentiment meets euphoria and joy for the day commemorating the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist, according to the Orthodox Church, and the banishing of the mischievous ‘Kalikantzaroi’ (goblins) back to the hollow earth for another year round!

Following a special morning Mass at the Cathedral of each town, a religious procession takes place in coastal cities and towns to the seafront (at around 10.00) where the priests bless the waters with the Holy Cross. During the ceremony the priest throws the Holy Cross into the sea while daring men dive into the cold water to retrieve it and thus earn the priest’s blessing for the year!
