Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus has proposed that certain religious events in the Greek Orthodox religion should be stopped.

Reason being he said “is that the teachers themselves or the pupils go to church on those days but they still want the day off.

The proposal is to scrap the following holidays: November 13 (Archbishop’s nameday),  January 30 (Three Hierarchs day), June 11 ( Saint Barnabas Day), Ascension Day and the local  saint’s day marked by each school.
