The Panathinaiko or Panathenaic Stadium (Greek: Παναθηναϊκό στάδιο), also known as the Kallimarmaro (Καλλιμάρμαρο, i.e. the "beautifully marbled"), is an athletic stadium in Athens that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.
The Feast of Epiphany is celebrated in Greece on January 6th and called Theophany or colloquially Phōta (Greek: Φώτα, "Lights"). Customs revolve around the Great Blessing of the Waters. It marks the baptism of Jesus and appearance of the Holy Trinity and the end of the traditional ban on sailing. At this ceremony, an orthodox cross is thrown into the water by a priest and young men strive to retrieve it for good luck.
