Greek Festival


Sunday grandson and I went to the Greek Festival to pick up some food for his mamma. The festival consists of tours of the Greek Orthodox Church (beautiful art), ethnic music and dancing, and fabulous food. We came home with sacks of gyros and Greek pastries. The boy loves Greek pastry! Its fun to have a glass of Greek wine and sit with others to enjoy the Greek music and dancing. The food lines are long, (every bit worth it). Its one of the many festivals in our community that is waited for all year long and becomes a tradition for many.

I feel grateful to live in a community of so much diversity, art, tradition, and history.

Next: Southerners know how to lighten up a winter with Mardi Gras in February. There will also be ballets, cantatas, plays, and Gallery Night to entertain us throughout the Christmas season.

Wow sounds wonderful. Doesnt Mardi Gras get dangerous though with all those people drinking and not caring what they do? I would be terrified of that part of it.

Mardi Gras is fine here - family event - wouldn't go to N.O. - but here is a mellow time.

Oh okay...yes a local celelbration. That makes sense because I figured you might be nervous of the huge crowd at Mardi Gras in N.O.

It sounds like fun. I've never before met anyone who has actually consumed a gyros though.
