You cross yourself and kiss the icon.
The tradition I've received is two bows, kiss, one bow.That said, this thread already demonstrates varying traditions. I don't think there's any set canons about this. Just be respectful and loving towards them...they're your family, after all!
I...want... to be wrong.
I find that when I'm in line to venerate an icon, I sometimes get a bit flustered trying to decide how I'm going to do it. "Two crosses, a bow, then one more cross and a kiss? No, I'll keep it simple. One cross, one kiss. That's it. But it is a pretty important icon... I better do a full prostration. No, because that'll be too flashy... What's everybody else doing?" At the Greek parish I've been attending, everybody seems to have their own veneration formula.

to allI have no problem with the idea of venerating icons, but i do have a something important question.How does one go about venerating an icon?If it matters in form, I am inquiring into the Russian tradition
And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.
Just out of curiosity do you mean "bow" as "forehead to the ground", bow as "deep bow with right hand touching the ground"
