1st May

The 1st May is considered the celebration of spring, nature and flowers. The boys and girls go out in the fields and “catch May”, as we say in Greece, that is they make flower wreaths. These are hung on the house doors until 24th June, when, on the celebration of Agios Ioannis Klidonas, they are thrown into the bonfires which are lit in the village squares.
