Wordless Wednesday

    • Thank you dear! This is a street fair that happens twice a year next to my parents’ house, for the celebration of two great saints that are said to be doctors and healers. The church bearing their name is right across from my family house and all my life I’ve experienced this twice a year! Now, I’m taking my children and I feel very touched because it’s something that means a lot to me. There’s also cotton candy and a band and in the evening the priests take out a big icon of these saints and walk it around the square, while chanting prayers. I don’t know if I can convey this happening to you correctly (I realize it might seem kind of weird), but seeing all these people gathered to celebrate their faith and have fun at the same time, is priceless. 🙂

  1. Great Fun . Those pom pom lights must look amazing if the light them !
    I remember in Gozo on a festival day a huge staue being held aloft and followeddby what seemed the whole town … Sweet little girls dressed in their best … Priests dressed in their best …
