We had a celebration dedicated to two major national anniversaries. We celebrated the uprising of Greeks against the Turks in 1821 that led to the creation of the Greek nation and also the fight of Cypriots against the British conquers in the period of 1955-59. The fight led to Cyprus independence and to the creation of Cyprus democracy.
March 19th is celebrated throughout Italy as a day of honoring and giving thanks to Saint Joseph the patron saint of workers and artisans. Saint Joseph is also the saint patron of our village and we celebrate him at school, too. On this occasion we prepare the "St. Joseph's Table". This ancient tradition goes back to the Middle Ages. At that time there was an exceptionally severe drought in Sicily. The peasants prayed to God for rain, and they also prayed to St. Joseph to intercede with God on their behalf. They promised that if God caused it to rain, they would have a special feast honoring God and St. Joseph.By miracle, the rains came and the crops were ere planted. With the harvest, the people prepared a feast of foods from their crops. This has become known as the Tavola di San Giuseppe.
