I Am Half Greek.My Grandmother's father came over from Greece, and had all girls. My grandmother married my grandpa who is Italian, Plastino is his last name. He was big and jolly..reminds me of Santa clause. but he was the most amazing man ever. anyways, I have found that Greeks are a very proud people. We love, good food, anyone whose Greek, and anyone who wants to become Greek. am i right in saying this ?
LOL My grandmother speaks Greek, and so does my aunt and my mom and I only speak partial Greek. My husband is not Greek, but he was brought up in it also. I took him to church with me on Sundays then we would go home and do our daily things.
We would go to Iliaki's on Greek Easter and roast lamb on a spit with everyone else who was at the church and part of the family.
I like this culture. Its very family oriented more than anything I think. Greek men, are nice, but some of them are womanizers. Nobody in my family married a Greek, at least in my immediate family. I think because of that reason. I am glad to be raised with this foundation, it gives me something to teach my kids and I know when i do have them they will always have their yaiyai and papou to take care of them if im not available.
