Agios Nikodimos Feast question...

So I"m doing this virtual vacation this weekend and while I'm staying in Mykonos, I'm thinking of hopping islands tonight and I noticed that one is having a huge feast called Agios Nikodimos.

Anyone know the history behind this? Is it a saint or something?

What is a virtual vacation?

A feast would include some sort of church service (optional for you but it would be nice to see) dedicated to saint nicodemus (agios in greek means saint or holy) . Afterwards there will be lots of greek food, greek dancing, Greeks drinking , possibly the selling of handicrafts. Basically a really big street faire. This is how all big feasts are in Greece.

Saint Nicodemus the righteous of mount athos according to the goarch calendar, somebody else might know more about him.

You will have to tell us how your vacation went, I love stories from Greece.

Thanks! It's going very well so far. Here's the thread to it with some info on your Saint.
