Ladies and gentlemen, sit comfortable and read this guide. Well, yes some times, some Greeks dance Zeimpekiko just because it “looks good,” but that is an exception. For some particular reason, there is a rumor that Greek taxi drivers know everything. When we order food, we tend to order more than we will eat.
It will save you time and from lots of frustration. We assume you date someone from Greece or are getting into that situation. “Good looks” is radically rising in Greece (to the borders of exaggeration in some cases). In the old days being “big” usually came along with lots of fat. A trend is rising among Greeks around their 40’s where they start learning traditional Greek dances, again! We do that both when we are happy, sad, angry, or as a gesture of intimacy. Just watch our tone of voice and facial expression. Fears come a long way with Greeks (as with other nations). During those two days, Greeks tend to take you out and treat you on their expense. When Greeks cook for a name day, birthday, Christmas, New Year Eve, Easter Sunday and many other holidays they cook a lot of different foods. We mostly seem to lose friends, sea, sun, beaches, food, wine, talking out loud, and many more.
Some of our ways of acting seem closer to those of Italians, but Italians are not Greeks (or maybe they are). People in other countries see that there is something “different” with us. From Eurovision to a game of backgammon or multi-sports, you will see Greek men and women get passionate. Just throw them competition on who can make the best “ntolmadakia.” In our traditional coffee shops (called “kafeneio”) you will see two people playing backgammon and another ten around them shouting and giving instructions. Well, our face -even a slight nose twist- will give you a good hint on how we feel for what you are saying or showing. They are carried over from generation to generation, getting less each time. If you are invited to a Greek house for dinner then -usually- the mother will cook a lot of things. These are the most common names you will find in many Greek families. It comes from the tradition to name the newborn with the name of the father’s/mother’s father/mother so to “keep the name in the family.” Makes no sense. This is a showing gratitude and respect for the elders and their contribution to your upraising. We have provided terminology and knowledge for many though and this is used worldwide. You can swim in Greek beaches without being afraid you might get eaten by any mammal.
By the way, when in Greece, make sure to check this list too. They are what they are, but also carry a bit of culture inside them, as they are connected to our evolution through times and eras where they meant something for daily life. That has to do with our belief that nobody must leave the table feeling not fulfilled. Well, it also means that you can shout out Maria in a square and 50 women will turn their heads. Greeks have contributed (at least ancient Greeks did) with the philosophical background on Reason. Chinese did too, along with more ancient civilizations like Egyptians, Persians, and more. You can walk in Greek forests without thinking that all plantation and insects may kill you.
While we know that you know that we’re hairy – we will never discuss these things with you and we will never let you see our grooming rituals.
