I was originally interested in learning Greek but the more I speak with Greek people the more I've become interested in learning about the religion! Which days are important to attend church leading up to the holiday on August 15? are there any special traditions that occur? Thank you to everyone

Words that are difficult to translate from Greek to English

Φιλοξενία – Filoksenia: This is the idea of being generous and offering friendship (in a loving way) to a stranger or foreigner. This word does not exist in most other languages and is a big part of Greek Culture and expression.

Για πάρτη μου – Ya Parti Mou: Technically this phrase means “for me” and it is used to mean “treating yourself” well.

Φιλότιμο – Filotimo: This means honor and truth and friendship, and loyalty to one another.
