The Village Festival





Back to the village, all decoration had finished and everything was ready.The fires had been lit and pork, sheeps and other animals were already on them been cooked.Across rooftops colorfull little flags were hanging, and on the streets you could see women and girls dressed up as Nymphs, holding a basket full of wheats, breads and pies which they gave to people. At the center of the village a big furnace was put in the middle of a circle and around it a playing had started, of how Mother Nature battled the Gods in order for humans to be able to live free on her domain. It was a beautiful story that our mother were reading to us when we were children. All around the village you could hear music and you could see people dancing around. Pretty ladies and handsome men jumping and hugging with a big smile to their faces. the oldest of people were sitting on the big tables drinking wine and laughing with jokes. It was truly a blessed celebration.A celebretion that soon would be ruined...
