People are on vacation
August is a popular month for people to take time off and relax. The tradition is that they would return to their villages for the summer brake get together with family and friends. The villages would in turn welcome their returning members by hosting big annual festivals. These annual festivals usually have live music, traditional dance, traditional food and drink.
The alternative of course is to travel, and people like to travel during this period especially to the Greek Islands and other further.
