I would love to be my nieces god mother…but I don’t want to put pressure on her. Is it okay to ask?? Or is it straight up rude

It really depends on the type of relationship you have with your nieces parents...I would just ask, but again this is a personal thing for sure! Not sure if anyone else has advice to give you here...

Generally, you look outside of the family for godparents because you want to grow your family, but you know your sister best so you should ask if you think she'd be okay with you asking. You could try asking her if she has found a nouno/nouna for daughters and then go from there.

That is a beautiful way to look at it :) thanks for sharing that perspective. I will likely do the same for my family whenever that happens, God willing

Just tell her you want to be the God mother and I won't take no as an answer. Then take control of the whole christening. That's the way

I would personally find a nice way to ask. Just ask them to consider you for it because you know you'd be great at it!
 

Translating a few lines from English to Greek

Can anyone possibly help me translate a few lines into Greek? I used to be able to read and write Greek when I was a child, but these days I can barely read at all.

I have a few lines of Greek dialogue in a book I'm writing, and even though Google Translate does a reasonable job of translating English to Greek, from what I can make out, the translation doesn't look correct in the way a normal Greek would casually say the words - the translation just looks a little too formal. Could someone possibly take a look for me - it would only take a few minutes to read through the 3 - 4 lines?

Thanks

Greek-American Thanksgiving Traditions?

My husband's Greek-American family celebrates Thanksgiving even though a lot of them are from Greece. They have a traditional Turkey meal with mashed potatoes, gravy, roasted squash, etc. I did notice that they also can't help themselves and regularly serve Greek dishes on the table like pastitsio and spanakopita. They also make these ground beef, rice, and chestnut dish they call "Greek stuffing". I am curious - what do you guys all do for a Greek-American Thanksgiving?

Resources for Orthodox Christian Religious Fasting?

This past year, I have started taking fasting a lot more seriously. I used to just fast off and on during lent, but I have since learned that fasting is a constant thing. One thing I have noticed is that I struggle a bit to find food to eat, or to know what to do. This is a resource that I find helpful - I am curious if you guys know of anything that can help me:

Finding a Wedding Planner in Greece?

I decided to do a destination wedding in Greece. I mentioned in an earlier thread that I am not an Orthodox Christian but have decided on the Athens area because I think there are some great photo opportunities all over the city and it is a bit more accessible. Anyway, I know I need help getting everything organized. How does one go about finding a wedding planner in Greece who can help?
