National Holiday

25th March is one of the biggest public holidays in Greece - the other being 28th October. The celebration of the anniversary of independence in 1821 combines with one of the holiest days for Greek Orthodox Christians, the Annunciation.

Given the highly intensive nature of the course, we don't take whole days off for public holidays, but we do cancel teaching practice so we only work for half the day.

In the morning we watch students from the local schools parading through the streets of Vrahati, followed by a display of traditional Greek dances in the village square.
