We wish to you the very best for the year 2013! We wish that this year shall be a lot wiser than 2012 and a lot more human for all people and their lives in Greece and Europe and everywhere....We wish real love and understanding to be a guide in more of our choices!
We hope - with this "strange" greek optimism and sense of humour- that better days are there to come!... By helping each other and doing things together.
Like being together, discussing together, eating together, making music together, dancing together....
Which makes me think of our beloved Ikaria (how original you will say!...) : here is a video of the Ai Vassilis Carols: the 1st Day of the Year, in the evening, people start singing them in each house of the village...walking around from house to house, wishing for the new year, the custom goes on until the dawn or even later!
Here is a video from Aghios Kyrikos region (from last year) and another one from the region of Raches, North Ikaria (from this year):
Lots of love and joy for all of you!
