I'm planning my trip to Greece, and from what I've been told Greek people eat at different times than people from other countries. What are the most popular meal time is in Greece? What time should I plan to go out for dinner, lunch, and breakfast?

This is a great question!

When I was a kid in the 1980s I used to spend each Summer in Greece with my family.

Back then it was a light breakfast, big lunch around 1PM (afternoon nap), snack around 5PM and huge meal late at night LOL.

A few years ago I went again and it was similar but I don't see the afternoon rest anymore :)

When I am in Greece, the same schedule pretty much happens. Light breakfast, early afternoon snack, late afternoon snack, then a bigger meal like at 9 PM or 10 PM. Funny enough, that is the schedule I seem to keep even in the United States. My body seems to be hardwired to like it that way.

When I was in Greece, I just stayed on my regular schedule of eating, When one is going to a taverna, one could eat by the likes of the 6PM time if desired. I never wanted to eat supper at 9PM like the Greeks do. The only time I'd eat on their schedule is if I went to an event that included dinner.
 

How can I have a COVID safe baptism?

I was asked to be a nona (godmother), and I'm helping my best friend plan the baptism for her firstborn son. We're so excited but we want a lot of her family members to be present. I know technically baptisms are supposed to be held inside the church, but has anyone heard of baptisms being outside? She's planning on having the baptism in Greece, and the weather will most likely be very nice. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Why do Greek Orthodox people fast?

I live in a predominately Greek neighborhood and a lot of my neighbors and friends are always talking about fasting… but I'm a little confused. I didn't know some Christians fasted. What is Greek orthodox fasting? What are you allowed eat or do and what are you not allowed to do?
