"The Blessing of the Waters"
The Greek Festival of Epiphany, or 'The Blessing of the Waters', is held every year on January 6 throughout all of Greece. Young Greek men dive for a cross after it has been blessed by a priest and thrown into the water. The first man to reach the cross is said to have good luck throughout the coming year.
