Monday, Mar 25

today is a double celebration day for greeks around the world – this year our celebrations are quieter since they fall during lent, but even a “subdued” greek celebration is a pretty good thing 🙂  Today is Greek Independence day (OXI day) and it is also a religious holiday celebrating the Annunciation of Virgin Mary – this is when archangel Gabriel told Mary she would be giving birth to Jesus.  in greek this holiday is called the Evangelismo … and everyone named Evangelos, Evangeline, Vangeli, Vangelistsa  and so on celebrate their name day today.  Today is also my nameday 🙂  And of course today is also my sister Nikki’s birthday.  When we were young we used to have the biggest parties ever on March 25 – it was Nikki’s birthday, my dad’s and my name day, many people in my dad’s family nameday and greek independence day.   So for all you world travelers out there – March 25 is a GREAT time to be in greece and get in on the parties
