Worlds Apart is a great movie for those that want to understand the Greek economic crisis from multiple different perspectives. The movie is in Greek and English, so great for international audiences. It follows three different people and their journey with the economic and migrant crisis. Each story paints a beautiful and tragic image of what happened and is still happening in Greece. Let me know what you think of the movie!

Beautiful movie. I watched it last year and thought it showed different perspectives very well.

I'd be interested in seeing this film. I spent some time in Crete on a few occasions during the crisis, at different points of it, and I noticed that peoples' mindsets were different each time. Does anyone know where I can do that (I am in the US). I tried looking around for it and couldn't find a way to stream it.

You can watch it on YouTube for $4.99 and on Amazon Prime video for $3.99 or for free if you have an account
 
Thank you for reminding us of the GFC, the Greek Financial Crisis not the Global Financial Crisis.
How funny the GFC was, the world used the Hellenic country and it's people to experiment on how to save the greedy human race.
And now we have a love story movie to show, what about a documentary on how human greed nearly destroyed the Greek people and their country.

There are movies for that too:

 

Do Greeks Celebrate Halloween?

I know that Halloween isn't something that is traditionally Greek, and that is true in other places in Europe, too. However, I have noticed in my travels that some countries have been embracing it. Is this the case in Greece or do Greeks mostly ignore it?

Kalikantzaros - Spooky Christmas Tradition

I am learning a bit more about Greek Christmas traditions, and I just bumped into something pretty spooky - the kalikantzaros, which are Christmas goblins. What really strikes me as that they aren't cutesy Christmas goblins. They appear to be pretty mean! Does anyone know more about them? They are a part of folklore not only in Greece apparently, but also in Serbia, Bulgaria, etc. I would love for you guys to share what you know about them.

Greek Table Etiquette?

I haven't really thought of this, but there is a lot of etiquette for dining in the Greek culture. What do you guys think? It looks like there is a lot to think about:


In particular, the section on doing toasts was fascinating. I noticed that just about at every meal, someone is doing a toast. Do you guys have anything to add?

How Do Greeks Celebrate Ohi Day?

I looked up Ohi Day resentful because I learned it was occurring soon. I find the history so interesting! I know that Greeks have the day off. I am wondering how Greeks typically celebrate it? The events surrounding the day seemed to represent Greece's ability to stand up for what was right and to resist the Axis forces. It was the right thing to do to not let the Axis enter Greece easily so that they can have a strategic place for their troops.

To celebrate this important part of history today, though, what do the Greeks do today?

How do you choose a name day?

I am wondering how you guys all choose a name day to celebrate. For example, I have a friend named John, and there are multiple saints that have that name. He said he chose the saint that resonated the most with him. I have another friend, also named John, who celebrated a different one because that is the one that the parents had selected. How do you know what the right choice is?
