Το Πάσχα του Καλοκαιριού

«...Και τον Δεκαπενταύγουστο μοσχοβολά όλη η χώρα μας από τη μυστική ευωδιά της Θεοτόκου. Ο αέρας, τα βουνά, οι θάλασσες, τα χωριά, οι πολιτείες γεμίζουν ευωδιά...»*
Για τους Έλληνες ο Αύγουστος, είναι ο μήνας της Παναγίας. Στις 15 Αυγούστου τιμούν την Κοίμηση της Θεοτόκου. Η γιορτή της Παναγίας, θεωρείται από τις κορυφαίες της Χριστιανοσύνης.

The month of August, is considered the Month of Our lady Virgin Mary, by Greeks all over the world. Almost the whole month is dedicated to various celebrations, both in Greece and abroad for the Dormition of Virgin Mary. At the same time, August brings to memory a series of other events, such as the sinking of the Greek vessel "Elli" by the Italians during WW2, in the harbour of the Tinos Island, the island dedicated almost exclusively for worshiping the Mother of Jesus.

The history of Mother's Day is centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. The early Christians celebrated the Mother's festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. Interestingly, later on a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it as the Mothering Sunday. The English colonists settled in America discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time. In 1872 Julia Ward Howe organized a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother's Day.
