  My home altar
by Prasnjavi

As everything here is in the sign of ?three?, almost every home here has altar with three icons. One is, always, of the Patron Saint and the rest are, mostly, Jesus and Holy Virgin. It is always on the eastern wall in the house.
I have Saint George on the top, triptych which is about 300 hundred years in my family, and a small icon of Jesus which my grandmother was caring in her purse. Also, the sanctuary lamp is more than 200 years old.
