Assumption of the Virgin Mary

Festival / Holiday
15/08
Gavalochori

This is the day when Mary ascended into heaven, and it is the third biggest religious holiday in Greece after Easter and Christmas. The holiday begins on August 15, and much of the commercial activity in the country is closed for the following 15 days. Most people have two weeks off from work during this time, and it is a time when people return to their home villages for family reunions. The end of the two weeks marks the end of the summer for the Greeks. Religious services are celebrated the evening before and the morning of this day in the Church of the Nativity of Mary in Gavalochori.

Celebration of the Church of Saint John of Douliana

Festival / Holiday
29/08

Celebration of the Church of Saint John that is located between Gavalochori and the village of Douliana (Δουλιανά) and marks the beheading of the saint. This day is a celebration both for villagers in Gavalochori and Douliana, who refrain from eating all food on this day. If they eat any foods, they supposedly will get goosebumps or feel a tremor. The goosebumps also may be attributed to the fact that Saint John is known for healing people from the shivers of malaria. Because the end of August often marks the change in climate from summer to fall, the goosebumps also could be due simply to the change in climate. A big festival in the square in the village of Douliana is held the evening of August 29 and during the day on August 30.
