Not only Carneval!

There is also another Greek practice condemned by the Church. To jump over fires, although it is done at a day of St. John. They call him with three different names as fortune-teller, bringer of good luck and oregano-plucker.
The fire is supposed to have a cleansing effect, to protect from evil, so that is the Church's problem.
