How to make baptism favors.
One of the many traditions of the baptism ceremony in Greece is the baptism favors that are given to guests. They are called "martirika" in Greek which means that you are a witness of the baptism. Traditionally they are pins but these days more and more people choose to give bracelets too for the women. These bracelets can be made in many ways but they have to incorporate a cross and be easy-to-wear.
