The Eyes Have It: The Evil Eye in Greece

Go out armed with a charm (or cross) and hope for the best!

THERE you are in an afternoon meeting, refreshed from a good eight-hours sleep, satisfied from a light and healthy lunch, and eager to discuss with your boss your new plans, when suddenly your head goes thick and hurts all over, your breath becomes short, nausea seeps up your trachea and you lose your sense of balance, being unable to think or communicate properly, as if you're moving in heavy syrup.

Evil eye

Nazars, charms used to ward off the evil eye.

The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury.[1]Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called "evil eyes".[2][3]

The “Evil Eye” & the Orthodox Church

Greek Orthodox Evil Eye Charm

Is the Evil Eye a reality or just superstition? The answer is quite clear to most of those we have spoken with over the years. Most are firmly entrenched in their position (whatever that might be) on the matter. Convincing them that their position is ill-founded, we have found, is uncompromising.

The Evil Eye

The Evil Eye

For the past few years now I have come across a superstition among the Greek people concerning good luck and bad luck, and how one may ward off evil. Some believe that they can protect themselves from evil by wearing an evil eye talisman (τέλεσμα) around their neck, many have it hanging on a chain together with their cross.

Greek Superstitions, Customs and Traditions

An assortment of Greek superstitions, customs and traditions, some have regional origins.

Greek Orthodox Evil Eye Charm
Evil Eye

The most commonly talked about ancient superstition in the Greek Isles. The evil eye can strike at any given moment. Perhaps there was an occasion that you were dressed up and someone told you how nice you look. A few minutes later you spilled coffee down the front of you, Or maybe someone told you how beautiful your new vase was and a while later it fell to the ground shattering in a thousand pieces. That’s the evil eye. To ward it off, there are a few different things you can do. You can buy blue charms shaped like eyes to ‘reflect’ the evil and they are worn on a necklace or a bracelet. Blue beads can also be worn instead of an eye. Blue is the colour that wards off the evil of the eye, but it is also commonly thought that blue eyed people are exceptional givers of it. So beware when a blue eyed person pays you a compliment, according to the superstition, it could be disastrous. Another way to ward off the evil eye is with garlic. There are rare instances when a single clove will grow into the shape of a small head of garlic. If you’re lucky enough to come across one, guard it well as it is the best thing to keep away the evil eye. You can carry it in your pocket, or keep it in a hanky in your bra. If you can’t brave the garlic, there is an alternative, When you get a compliment remember to say ‘Skorda (garlic)’ under your breath and spit three times on yourself. If you know the individual that is complimenting you, tell them to spit on you too. The Greek Orthodox Church also believes in the evil eye, and they refer to it as “Baskania”.
Bat Bones
For some People bat bones are considered to be very lucky. These people carry a small bit of the bone in their pockets or purses with them where ever they go, although killing a bat is deemed to bring bad luck. Other People believe bats are unholy creatures and should be avoided at all costs.
Bread
Bread is considered a gift from God. It has roots from the bible story, Sermon on the Mount, of how Jesus Christ fed thousands with the fish and the bread. The older village women always make the sign of the cross over a fresh loaf before slicing it. No bread is ever thrown away. If it is not eaten in some way or another, it is fed to the animals, as it would be a sin for it to end up in the garbage and has to be consumed.
The Pomegranate
The pomegranate is a symbol of happy times, fertility and prosperity in Greek folklore, and in some parts of Greece people take a pomegranate with them when they visit people on New Year’s Eve and smash it on the threshold, so that the household will have good luck and prosperity in the coming year.
