Happy Epiphany! Cross divers show the joy of the faitfhful
« on: January 06, 2013, 02:33:42 PM »
Today in Kalofer, Bulgaria, a popular event associated with Orthodox Christian Epiphany was held. A cross was thrown into the river, and young men dove to retrieve it. Similar celebrations were held in many places around the world.

From the article:
Quote
Traditionally, an Eastern Orthodox priest throws a cross in the river and it is believed that the one who retrieves it will be healthy through the year.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
