An icon corner is the family's place of worship, also called the home altar. The concept of the church of the home is an ancient Orthodox tradition, beginning in the first century. At this time there were no separate churches, so Christians would gather in private homes to worship.

Icon corners are typically located in the north- or south-east corner of a room, or on an east-facing wall of the house, since East is the traditional direction for Orthodox prayer.


The perishable items should be eaten, distributed to the birds, or burnt if it is necessary to dispose of them.
