Panigyrias – In Greece, calendar festivals give rise to popular celebrations called panegyrics. Almost everywhere, the Virgin is celebrated on August 15. During parish festivals, we sing, dance and shop because real fairs are set up in the villages, attracting many street vendors. Popular music bands play all night. You will be surprised to see that the young Athenians also know how to appreciate these traditional tunes and that they dance very well on them. If you have the opportunity to join a panegyric, do not remain a simple spectator, out of respect for your hosts – the best being to be invited and to be accompanied. In Greece, it is customary to celebrate one’s holiday rather than one’s birthday. Tradition has it that on that day we offer a good meal or cakes to family and friends. Many are the Greeks who receive the day of Saint George (Giorgos, the patron saint of the country), Saint John (Giannis), and Saint Nicholas (Nikolaos), Saint Mary
The pleasures of the table are not necessarily those that will be remembered first of a trip to Greece. So many taverns and so little diversity in the menus: Greek salad, kebabs and grills make up an ordinary dish which is often not very exciting. It is also that the tourist influx has led to the multiplication of restaurants which often only open in high season – the opportunity to take advantage of the windfall represented by the approximately 15 million visitors who welcome the country each year. And since we have to feed everyone, we improvised a restaurant, making up for its lack of experience by the local color, fishing nets hanging from the arbor and musical background of bouzouki: frozen moussaka and Enfants du Piraeus, the two friends from which the visitor would like to be able to escape. However, in Greece as in France, the table is a serious matter: for the quality of the dishes of course, but also (above all?) Because it serves as a pretext for happy friendly meetings, where everyone picks as they please in the ‘one of the many dishes that garnish the table. A Greek meal is abundance and sharing with, for an emblematic introduction, the mezedes (plural of mezze).
A constant in Greece: from the Albanian border to the southern tip of the Peloponnese, the summers are hot everywhere, and scorching in places, like in the plains of Sparta or Larissa. But the nights are refreshed by the breeze on the coast and the nights by the altitude in the mountainous areas. The summer period, marked by the scarcity of precipitation, lengthens as one reaches the south of the country. In winter, on the other hand, the situation is more contrasted: the coastal regions and the foothills experience mild and moderately wet winters, while temperatures are sometimes harsh in the mountains, the seasons more marked in the north and the highest peaks remain snow-capped from November to April. Unlike other Mediterranean countries, such as Spain, Greece does not suffer from a water deficit: the mountains present everywhere, play their role of water towers perfectly by retaining precipitation. Some areas, however, are experiencing water supply problems – this is the case, in particular, of the Cyclades due to a large summer tourist frequentation.
