Orthodox Tradition

In the Greek village of Olympos, tradition calls for a procession of icons on the Tuesday after Easter from the Orthodox church to the cemetery. This photo appeared in a December 1983 story about Olympos, home to just a few hundred people who speak a dialect that dates back to Homer.
