The 25th of March is very important for two reasons. First of all, it is known that the Greeks are a very religious people. The Greek Orthodox Church celebrates the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary that she is going to be the Mother of Jesus Christ by the Arachangel Gabriel, exactly nine months before Christmas. And because of the sanctity of this day, the Greeks decides to celebrate the Greek Revolution, the War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire taht started in 1821. On this day it is a tradition to eat bakaliaros skordalia (cod fish with garlic mash) and watch the parades. Enjoy the day!
