The big feast of the Greek Church year that takes place on August 29th is the feast of “Ai Yiannis o Rigologos” that can be loosely translated as St John that brings tremors or maybe the chills.
The day of the Beheading of the Saint, where a strict fast is observed. People do not eat anything related to blood (no black red grapes and red figs of the season), anything touched by a knife (bread is cut by hands ) – otherwise they will disrespect the name of the the Saint , and have tremors instead (an orthodox Greek nemesis).
