On July 26th is Saint Paraskevi’s feast. She is the protecting saint of Chalkis. Every year there is a celebrating letourgy organized on the church and alot of people, all over Greece, come to show their respect. It is considered a big blessing. Also Saint Paraskevi is the protector for any eye sickness. In the night of the 25th is when this all happens. Then, for the whole following week, a big festival is held on the town that is fairly big (i would estimate about 3 kilometers of small shops with anything that one can imagine, it’s like an eastern market place). So, here are some pics from the church when i went on the night of the 25th. Hope you like them, as always!
PS: If i take a stroll down the market place i will surely take my camera with me 😉
