Traditions

Saint Sarkis

A special cake called "Koumbou" is made on St. Sarkis' Day. Before baking this cake, the housewife would divide it into pieces according to the number of the family members. In each piece she would put a small item symbolizing the different assets of the family. The next day they would cut the cake and everyone would anxiously dig up the small item hidden in their cake. Interestingly, the object symbolizing money was considered as bad luck. When it would be discovered in someone's piece, the rest of the family would shout "throw it into the sea".
