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?

That is such a good question. A lot of people don't know that some Greek people fast. I don't know too much about it, because I don't personally fast myself. But my grandma usually avoids eating meat eggs fish and milk before any major holidays, especially Easter.

How much money is acceptable for a Greek baptism gift?

I'm going to a Greek baptism this summer in Athens and I was wondering how much money is normal for a baptism gift. I've been to many baptisms before but my family is Catholic so I don't know how Greek baptisms are different.
