NATIONAL ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD WAR 2


Today is the Greek national celebration for the negative reply to the Italians when they demanded to take our country during the second world war.
This day is a national holiday.
The schools, the shops, everything are closed.

The pupils from schools, the army and many societies, do march past (παρέλαση), with the band playing the national hymn (εθνικός ύμνος) and the flags waveing all over the place.


My grandfather Dimitris, who lived in Crete, fought at this war.

I'm very proud of him.

My girls participated to this march past with the Cretan society of Salamina (Κρητικός σύλλογος Σαλαμίνας "Η Μεγαλόνησος").
