In Sifnos tradition is still a part of our everyday lives, even today!
Throughout the changing seasons of the year, many customs that are still kept today give Sifnos a very special character.
The Sifnos ‘panigyria’ festivals with their particular rituals are held all year round. They are organised by ordinary people, the so-called “panigyrades”, and they are open to everyone. All visitors are welcome.
The Sifnian marriage customs, the ‘tsounia’ (games of ninepins), the New Year’s carols, the Carnival ‘kamilomata’, the Sunday ‘revithada’ (oven-baked chickpea soup) and the melodic local dialect are some of the customs and habits of the island that continue unaltered today.
