Annual Flood Festival

Each year in June the flood festival, known as Kataklysmos*, is taking place in each coastal town of Cyprus, which is celebrated 50 days after Orthodox Easter on the day of the Holly Spirit.

It is an open-air fair with the stalls set up alongside the seashore selling crafts, toys, hygiene items, traditional food and sweets.

The most popular custom of the day of  Kataklysmos is the throwing of water to one another. A custom we really enjoyed when we were younger.

*Cataclysm comes from the Greek word Kataklysmos which means “a deluge or flood.”

Once upon a time there was a couple –  a man & a woman – and they had each other…  After a long time they became three and they had you! Now they have Everything!!!

A new baby girl came to our lives and we are truly happy.  That is the reason of my long absence from writing posts! As a new mother I needed time to adjust and spend a lot of time with my newborn baby.
