Strong wind throws the Priest into the sea in Greece on Epiphany day


 Numerous believers have taken place today in Skala, Kephalonia in Greece to participate in the ceremony of throwing the Cross into the Sea, known as the 'Epiphany', though there was a terribly strong wind.

The wind was so strong that pulled the priest down as he tried to throw the cross into the water.

The priest stood up with the help of the people present and threw the cross on the second attempt.

The cross was tied by rope due to the stormy sea, as a brave woman entered the 'frozen waters' and seized the Cross.

On the 6th of every January, the Christmas season in Greece officially comes to an end with the 'festival of light' ('ton foton' in Greek), also known as Epiphany.

This day in the Greek Orthodox Church is known as 'Theophania' which means 'a vision of God' or 'Christ shining through'. It is considered a very important day for the Greek Orthodox Church. In the Western Church, it is also known as 'Three Kings Day'.
