On January 6th, the "twelve days" of Christmas officially come to an end. This day has a special meaning in Greece. There will be special ceremonies of blessing the waters and the vessels that ply them.
Many islands and villages offer different versions of the event. It is traditional holiday, performed by the Greeks for themselves, absolutely not for tourists.
