OPA! Theophany & Greek Dancing

 

Yesterday was Holy Theophany (Epiphany for my Western Christian friends and those not familiar with the word “Theophany”), and so my family attended the Divine Liturgy at our Greek Orthodox Church, and the blessing of the water service followed.

Then, we went downstairs and ate a delicious meal at the Vasilopita (St. Basil’s bread) luncheon. Followed by that, we all were treated to Greek dancing by our parish teens. Here’s the two short minute and a half (each) videos I took. Enjoy!

    Looks like a good time was had by all. Epiphany was special in my house growing up. My mother one year , forgot to fill the stockings on Christmas. She then told us that the stockings would be filled by the three wisemen on Epiphany. It was nothing big; fruits, nuts and may 2 quarters.

    1. Love your mother’s explanation, Jenn! At one time in the Orthodox Church (primarily in the slavic countries), Christmas and Theophany used to be celebrated on the same day. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your post!
