The majority religion of Cyprus is Greek Orthodox. However, the occupied Northern Territory is largely Muslim. There is also a substantial British expat community (around 12%). Greek Orthodox is described in the link below; however there are some local variations. Perhaps the most interesting is Kataklysm. This is a celebration(!) of the Great Flood described in Genesis. It's combined with Pentecost and has some association with the birth of Aphrodite - who was born in Cyprus.
