Klidonas is revived on the Feast of Aghios Ioannis Fotaras June 24. The custom refers to a kind of popular divination usually celebrated on that day. A little earlier, each one of the villagers puts secretly an object into the Klidonas, which is sealed when the process is over. On the day of the celebration, all locals gather to unseal it. Each participant takes an object at random. In order to get his/her own back, he/she must recite verses to the person who holds it. According to the tradition, attendees are offered pie and water from a mountain. Today, the custom is revived in Ysternia.
