Christmas Customs

As in all the villages of Cyprus thus in Vasa Kellakiou has its own manners and customs. Some are common with other villages and some you will find only in Vasa Kellakiou. Enough from these manners and customs today do not exist while some others  are maintained up to today.

Christmas  – New year’s  day :

The preparation for  Christmas and New year’s day began very early.  The  white washing of the houses, their cleanness, was on  daily order.

What distinguished these days was ‘Santa claws’. They threw a leaf of olive in the turned on coals and they said "Santa claw my king reveal to me  if he/she  loves me." If the leaf of olive sprang in the coals, the answer was positive. If it was burned without   springing, then the answer was negative.
