Below is a house I see something I have never seen before elsewhere in Greece. An image of Christ who smiles. I go in and stare at him for a while. I liked the idea.
After eating a delicious food, singing starts. There are local musicians playing. Oldest men sing first, the priest also. In a while, dancing starts. This will last until morning.
A lot of people come and stay in the monastery until late, chanting for the icon. I found a small cell with a fireplace and I decided to sleep there with a local guy since I should get up before sunrise to follow the litany. Most of the people have left, headed back home, planning to arrive in the morning, for the litany.
Kordelati and Foustanelati at the villages.This is the carnival of Naxos island!
The traditional event of the ''Kapetania'' takes place on the last Sunday of the Carnival in Serifos Island. According to tradition, two teams, each one with a captain, stage a theatrical conflict outside the Monastery of the Taxiarches. The custom has been kept alive thanks to the efforts of the Serifos Women's Association.
