Father Christmas in Greece, known as Agios Vassilis (Saint Basil/ Basillis/ Bill), comes with the arrival of the New Year, bearing gifts.
It is tradition for the first visitor who comes to your home after the clock chimes 12.00 to knock on your door and when you open the door to him he will have a big stone with him, a jug of water and a pomegranate. He places the stone on the floor, pours the water over it and then breaks the pomegranate. This ritual is one to bring good luck to your home for the year ahead. Whilst he is performing the ritual he is also chanting words similar to these: “As heavy as this stone is, may your pockets be from abundance of money….As this water pours, may the happiness and laughter pour into your home….. As the same way the pomegranate seeds spread across your floor may the joy and heath spread across your home.

http://www.theotheraegean.com organised a seminar called Social Media Marketing. Of which they also contributed to the cost.
It was a two day course of which over 50 people with different businesses from Lesvos took.
It was a very enjoyable experience. We all learnt many things which should be a great help in our being able to introduce Molyvos and Lesvos to the world.
Our speaker was Panos Kazanelis, who kept our interest and made the event fun. With lot of humour and laughter helped keep our attention for the many hours that was needed to complete this course.
The seminar was held in the Delfinia hotel and Andonis and crew looked after us very well serving us with coffee and delicious biscuits when we needed a break

The Moving in Molyvos festival is part of a new creative approach to the promotion of the island’s well-known health-giving properties such as the natural hot spring spas. These are already enjoyed by both holiday-makers and participants in the many health and well-being seminars held on the island every year.
Now the local tourist association is bringing together the many teachers and workshop leaders working on Lesvos to celebrate their work in this unique three-day event.
The festival offers the chance to take part in a fascinating series of workshops, open to men and women, at the special festival price of 5 euro per class in:
All participants are invited to a series of complimentary Greek lessons and special free evening events:
• Welcome drinks to introduce the festival and the teachers
• Sunset at Molyvos castle with ouzo and traditional Greek music
• A chance to dance! Enjoy a short performance of Greek dances
before getting up and joining in – encouraged by some Greek wine
During the festival, there will be an exhibition of classic and contemporary work by local artists at the Trifon building on the harbour every evening, with free entrance for everyone.
All the festival events are designed to complement each other and to foster well-being, strengthen the mind and body, and energize the individual.
A significant proportion of the festival income goes to local charities.

Set high up in the mountains behind Eftalou, it is an area of outstanding beauty and we wanted to restore it to its natural state.
With rubber gloves to the ready we marched forth to be horrified at how much rubbish there was still left there.
3 Tons of rubbish was collected, organised by the environmental group of the Molyvos Tourist Authority, the volunteers included residents of the village, the local scout group and even a group from the Mitilyne Post Office who drove 60 kilometers to join us.
There is still more rubbish but at least we are happy to be moving in the right direction and hope that this initiative will be taken up by many more local groups.
