Many people in the feast of St. George in Strofilia of Northern Evia .

Many people honored the feast of St. George in Strofilia of Northern Evia. At the picturesque chapel of St. George, located in a place where nature has given her beauty and tranquility hundreds of faithful pious and devoted Christians honored the memory of the saint and exchanged greetings for Easter. As part of the tradition that has been adopted for many years by the Cultural Association of the village many coppers were set in the courtyard of the church. Boiled sheep meat with pasta and local wine were distributed to all attendees. The picturesque chapel of Ai Giorgis located within the lush hillside of Strofilia has been recently renovated, since the original building dates from the 18th century, whereas the surrounding area has been rearranged on the initiative of villagers. Nevertheless, one thing is certain: half Greeks are named after Saint George, whereas the other half are named after saint Ioannis. All the best and many happy returns to them!!!!!
