Wedding customs

“On the Tuesday after the wedding the newlywed woman would get up and make coffee. The relatives would make their way to her home, she’d serve the coffee and they’d leave money on the coffee tray. On the Wednesday after the wedding she’d get up and make pie to convince her mother in law that she knew how to make phyllo pastry. She’d then make another meal. Then she’d take a jug, some moist butter, a few coins and maybe two or three kids and she’d head to the water fountain to pray. So she’d pray and with the butter she’d draw with her finger a couple of crosses on random spots and she’d fill her jug with water from the tap, if there was any. On the Thursday the newlywed woman would light the cauldron to do the laundry. At this stage it was determined if she was worthy, good and honest. Back then they’d wash the clothes here at home, not in the river. But even if they went to the river they’d take the cauldron and its base, and with some sticks light the cauldron for the water to warm up. On the Sunday, 8 days after the wedding, the newlyweds, the Godfather, the husband’s family and the in-laws would go to Church”.
