The kaniski

My sister’s husband was from Protopapa. The wedding took place here in Ioannina. The celebration took place at the in-laws’ house. Then at weddings, relatives made jokes with each other. Three friends of my father went and stole the godfather’s kaniski, that is, the lamb brought by the best man and would be served at the end of the feast. These three guys did this because the groom’s kin they stole our bride the day before and left a pillow on her bed. So, at the end of the celebration, when the father-in-law realized what had happened, he came out and said: “In-laws, we got into trouble. The cats ate our kanisk” to justify himself.
