Today there was a traditional festival on our island. Here this is a big event, where a whole bunch of stuff happens. On the other hand is a kind of mark for the beginning of the winter (as we say in Greek) and maybe, in a way for the return to the normal, calm life with end of the tourist season.
First, of course, there is a folk part in which local groups show their abilities. Living on an island leaves you knowing everyone around, so we know all the singers and dancers and have been watching their performances for as long as we can remember. This is why they make a special effort to create new choreography each year, to learn new dances. new songs, new combinations. It is beautiful how they use their art to try and give us joy.
Then, there are all the "makers". Everyone who creates something is here, selling, but mostly chitchatting and sharing. Is a big meeting of all the creative minds who live here - the potters, the carpenters. the artists, traditional and modern, the tailors, everyone! They proudly show to the public and their colleagues all their work, new ideas and new productions.
Here are also all the taverns with small carts with their best (secret) recopies, every islanders who live away, all the positive and creative energy we could possibly create. It is our way to prepare for the long winter, warming up in advance with our minds and souls brought together.
