I love when Greek women dance zeibekiko!!

Zeibekiko is traditionally danced by men, but many women over the years have started dancing this beautiful dance. I love seeing everyone join in. Its my favorite dance because it is filled with passion and emotion.

This is the meaning of the abbreviation "xmas"

Many think that the “X” in xmas actually doesn’t replace “Christ” in “Christmas”, but is actually an abbreviation. The Greek word for Christ is Χριστός (Christos) and English speakers appear to have been using “X” to abbreviate Christ for quite some time. However, whether or not this is actually the case has been under debate for quite some time.
