Hope all reading this are enjoying whichever season they are in the present!!..... Here in Thailand we go deep into the Monsoons! Greece is predicted to be even hotter than July weather wise as my friend informs me!
I am so excited, I have just been asked to be a godmother. I know generally what is expected but I am trying to sort it all out. What is it that godparents need to bring to the Christening? I know that the priest usually provides a list but I want to start getting ahead of it. With Easter just behind us, I don't know how long it will be until I get the list. The Christening isn't for a few months, but I know that the church seems to be a bit behind and I have no idea how long it will be until I get the list!
WG is a great website to discuss Greek places to travel to as well as traditions, history, and mythology. However, I think it would be a great tool for ANYbody and for HS students to learn about Greeks ancient and modern if we had a literature forum with specific references to and info about, lyrical and dramatic poets, theologians, philosophers, scientists, medical writers, historians/ethnologists, etc. // yes/no?
ALL ABOUT THE HISTORICAL GREEK [linguistic] INTELLECT, the NOUS POIETIKOS, the summit of Greek culture. // don't wait for artificial intelligence.......
I remember my family spitting to ward off the evil eye (or something like that). I can't remember all the rules. I am trying to pass down some of the stories to the next generation but I am fuzzy on the details. I recall when my cousin was born, everyone was spitting on him? It seemed a little odd but I was just a kid and recall participating (and it was fun haha).
People were also saying something while spitting. What was it?
