Swimmers vie to catch a metal cross during an Epiphany ceremony to bless the waters in the southern city of Larnaca, Cyprus, on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2011. Similar ceremonies to mark Epiphany were held across Greece and Cyprus at the sea and at dams. An Orthodox priest throws a cross into the water, and the swimmers race to retrieve it first.
