The monastery of Saint Panteleimon, near Vlasti Kozanis, celebrates its patron saint. Many pilgrims arrive to pray and at the same time the villagers climb the mountain on the back of their horses.
On August 16 every year at the Saint Gerasimos church of Kefalonia island, the relic of the Saint is taken out of the church in a litany and pilgrims lie down on the street to let the relic pass above them, so that they get blessed.
Every August 15, Orthodox Christians from all over the world crawl to the church of Our Lady of Tinos in Greece...
Every year, a few days before the Assumption of Mary, the snakes get out nearby the church of Mary of the snakes. Crowds of believers come by to see the snakes and even touch them so that they get blessed by them.
I saw people hanging from the windows trying to get a glimpse of the parade. I squeezed to the opposite wall trying to fit the scene inside my 20mm lens. I waited patiently for a horse to enter the frame before I captured the photo.
