Race for a blessing

Every year on the 6th of January, Greek church celebrates the “Epiphany” or “Theophany” which actually is the baptism of Jesus.

During the celebrations there is a race between volunteers against the wooden cross that the priest throws in to the sea.

The winner gets the blessing!
