We're Celebrating Greek Independence Day

We're Celebrating Greek Independence Day

Dear Kosterina Family, 

Greece, as we know it today, has only been in existence for 200 years. Even though Greek culture is filled with deep history (and the language has been spoken for over 3,000 years!), it wasn't until 1830 that Greece was officially recognized as an independent state.

And today, March 25th is a day of celebration: Greek Independence Day. 

Greek Independence Day, otherwise known as 'Oxi Day', represents the moment in history when Greek people said 'no' to the Ottoman Empire and began to fight for their independence. Now, 201 years later, we stand behind those who continue to fight for their independence.

In recent years, Greek Independence Day has joined together with an important religious holiday in Greece, The Feast of Annunciation. Since Independence Day falls during Lent, it gives Greek people a special time to celebrate and connect with friends and family. 

Often, this day is marked with parades, large seafood dinners (because we typically fast from meat products during Lent!), and recognition of Greece's longevity as a culture. Even if you're not celebrating, it's a holiday that reminds us to make room for celebration and tradition.

How are you making room for time with friends and family? Maybe plan a simple family dinner or brunch out? Let this serve as a reminder to take time to connect.
