The "Bambo" custom will be revived on Saturday in regions of the northern prefecture of Serres, N. Petra, Monokklisia, A. Kamila and Haropo.

According to the custom, the roles of women and men change. Women play the dominant role, while the men stay at home and do housework. In many regions, this day was later named the "Day of Women's Rule."

In the Serres prefecture, this day is a day of honour for the oldest woman in the village (Bambo) who also used to function as a midwife in the past.
