ARIS CAVES is located a mere 100 yards from the center of Oia village and close to all attractions but in spite of this proximity remains tranquil and ideal for a calming stay in Santorini. Relax, dream and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Santorini Caldera sunset from one of luxurious studios.

Vasilopita is a traditional Greek dessert prepared across Greece for New Year’s Day with the roots of the tradition stemming from the legend of Saint Basil. 
At midnight after the year changes, families across Greece cut the vasilopita to bless the house and bring good luck for the New Year. A coin is hidden in the cake before baking and the sign of the cross is etched with a knife across the cake. A piece of cake is sliced for each member of the family and any visitors present at the time, usually by order of age from eldest to youngest. 
Today the cake cutting is not only celebrated in families but also in companies and organizations across Greece during the month of January 
According to legend, St. Basil called on the citizens of Caesarea to raise a ransom payment to stop the siege of the city. Each member of the city gave whatever they had in gold and jewelry. When the ransom was raised, the enemy was so embarrassed by the act of collective giving that he called off the siege without collecting payment. St. Basil was then tasked with returning the unpaid ransom, but had no way to know which items belonged to which family. So he baked all of the jewelry into loaves of bread and distributed the loaves to the city, and by a miracle each citizen received their exact share, the legend goes.

The Feast of Epiphany is celebrated in Greece on January 6th and called Theophany or colloquially Phōta (Greek: Φώτα, "Lights"). Customs revolve around the Great Blessing of the Waters. It marks the baptism of Jesus and appearance of the Holy Trinity and the end of the traditional ban on sailing, as the tumultuous winter seas are cleansed of the mischief-prone kalikántzaroi . At this ceremony an orthodox cross is thrown into the water by a priest and young men strive to retrieve it for good luck.
