Doxology for the New Year

We have two parishes here in Portaria. After our respective Liturgies on the morning of January 1, we gather at St. Nicholas to celebrate together the Doxology for the New Year, as well as the cutting of the Vasilopita.

Above, you can see, in the center, the protopsaltis at St. Nicholas, my friend Georgios.

Here we are, Archimandrite Agathonas and I, during the cutting of the Vasilopita.

In the background below, you can see the civil and military authorities of the region, waiting to receive pieces of the Vasilopita on behalf of their respective services.

For the curious minds, alas, I did not find the flouri (coin) in my piece.
