Walking on Fire, and by Faith, in Northern Greece

The room was dimly lit, illuminated only by a weak yellow light bulb and the flames from the fireplace. A small group of men and women, clutching the holy icons of Greek Orthodox saints, was dancing and twirling around the floor under the sound of the instruments: a Thracian lyre, a gaida, a tambourine. The dancers, surrendering to the music, had their eyes closed.

Everyone sang together:

    Constantine the little one, little Constantine,
    His mother had him, she took care of him while he was very young,
    A message came for him to go to war,
    He saddles and horseshoes his horse in the night,
    He puts silver petals, golden nails and a pearl on the saddle.


Their voices carried outside into the rainy streets. A while later, in a kind of an ecstasy, they began walking barefoot on burning coals.
