Lecture: presentation of traditional Paxos wedding customs and rituals

By poet and folk customs researcher of the Ionian Islands, Spyros Bogdanos

Besides customs similar to all the Ionian Islands, Paxos has its own special customs, some of which have remained in tradition archives, while some others still live in every day Paxos life. Memoires written and oral as well as Archives Research create a pool of invaluable information on local wedding customs that local couples had to honor in order for their marriage to be steadily founded.
