Question 191

I've seen a few weddings where the priest dances with the couple never seen that before and the sickening part is they dance better than me lol 

 

Answer to Question 191

 

I've seen them too and do they move! In Greece it is accepted that a priest will dance at social gathering, that is how it has always been and people do not get scandalized. In Cyprus, we have the opposite and if and when people see a priest dance it is blown out of proportions and many people are scandalized. In truth Cypriot priests are very reserved and even though they would love to get up and dance especially at their children's wedding, the majority would stay seated just in case it makes the headlines in the morning papers.
