Epiphany 6 January

Don’t forget it is Epiphany in the Orthodox world on Friday to celebrate the manifestation of the son of God into Jesus. It is a holiday so many shops will be closed. Traditionally, the priest will throw a wooden cross into the sea and a few hardy guys jump in the retrieve it, I fear it will be a bit chilly this year! In Kissamos, it takes place at the western end of the promenade, near Papadakis taverna, around 11.00 or so.


I come from the UK but moved to the town of Kissamos with my wife in 2010 after retiring from work. My main hobbies are walking, showing friends around the area and eating chips.
