Kurban Bayram (feast of sacrifice)

Event date: 10/17/2014 - 10/20/2014 Export event

The Kurban Bayram (feast of sacrifice) lasts four days and is celebrated 70 days after Seker Bajram. The first day the sacrifice of small animals (sheep - goats) takes place. 

The ¼ of the animal meat is shared to neighbours poor people and the other is cooked at home. In this celebration young people are gathered and dressed up in the evening. They usually make a fake camel, dress a groom, a bride with tabors and zournades and roam around the neighborhoods. 

They wish happiness and longevity to households and they treat them sweets and give them money. The custom of the so-called Camel is carried out with great participation of the residents in the Lykeio settlement.
