Christ is Risen... Christos Anésti
It truly feels like Easter, after a wet and miserable day yesterday. Today's glorious clear weather is inspiring - church was packed for the early service and the music, hymns and even the sermon amazing. We made sure all the cats were in last night as the crackers went off, thankfully and miraculously, with no obvious casualties, the candles have been lit and our village is now in party mode. Most years we join them and sit out in the square watching the dancing and children's games and chuckle at the excitement as the bingo reaches it's climax - we are lucky to live in a village that still gathers to celebrate in a traditional manner and to be able to join in with the dancing that circles round the square as the dusk falls and suffer with everyone as Kostagis's dad gets drunk and takes over the microphone to sing with his elderly friends! It is definitely fitting to be thinking about dancing. I have been working on posters and tickets for two new events - the first one a Barn Dance that is being kindly organized for me to help cover some of the costs involved in getting my qualifications, the other is the June Jamboree we are holding at the Elea
