Independence day celebrates the separation of Greece from the Ottoman empire. Greece was struggling for over 400 years to gain independence, and finally in 1821 they became an independent state.

It states the start of the revolution against the dominance of Ottoman empire. This is not the exact date that started, they chosed this date to coincide with the great chistianic holiday of Eyaggelismoy tis Theotokou. It is not an intependence Day, it is the 'revolution start'

Apparently there was a pandemic in ancient Athens!

While I was doing some research about the pandemic I realize that they were actually way more common than I had thought.

Did any of you know about this???

Did the "siesta" or Greek mid day nap originate from Ancient Greece?

Does anyone know about the origins of the famous mid day nap that Greeks take?

What is the history of philotimo?

It's crazy to think that something I've come to value so much about modern Greek people is actually from the ancient Greeks. Does anyone know where, when or from whom the concept of philotimo emerged in Ancient Greece?
