Transcript of Grillhouse Mykonos, Plasmolen
Greece is located in Europe...
The countries surrounding Greece are
Albania, Macedonia, Bulagaria, and Turkey

The nine stripes represent the number of syllables in the Greek phrase "Eleutheria H Thanatos", translated as "Freedom or Death", a battle cry during the final revolt against the Ottoman Occupation.
The cross represents the Greek Orthodox church, the predominant religion of Greece and the only officially-recognized one. The Church played a crucial role in the fight for independence against the Ottomans, and rebellious monks fought vigorously against the Ottomans.
The color blue represents the sea which is important to Greece and a major portion of its economy. The white represents the waves on the ocean. Blue has also always been a color of protection.

Greece has two kinds of Government:
A constitutional republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are representatives of the people and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government's power over citizens.
Athens is the capital and largest city in Greece. Around 750,000 people live there.
Athens dominates the Attica region and is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning about 3,400 years.
A parliamentary system, or parliamentarism, is a multi-party form of government in which the executive is formally dependent on the legislature. Hence, there is no clear-cut separation between the legislative and executive branches of government.
Alexander the Great
Commonly known as Alexander the Great, he was tutored by philosopher Aristotle until he was 16 years old. By the age of thirty, he had created one of the largest empires of the ancient world, stretching from the Ionian Sea to the Himalayas.
Alexander succeeded his father, Philip II, to the throne in 336 BC after Philip was assassinated. Upon Philip's death, Alexander inherited a strong kingdom and an experienced army. He had been awarded the generalship of Greece and used this authority to launch his father's military expansion plans.
Population & Area
Greece has a population of 11.28 million people and covers 50,942 square miles.
Illinois has a population of 12.8 million people and covers 57,915 square miles.

Most Greek children are given a name that coincides with the name of a Greek Orthodox officially recognized saint. The name day is celebrated on the saint's day, and is a cause for birthday-like celebrations.
Holidays and Customs:
The traditional format of a name day celebration is an open house where all well-wishers may be welcomed. Children celebrate their birthdays and name days equally festively.
Entertainment at name day celebrations may include a meal, drinks, desserts, music and more.
As with other cultures, some names are more popular than others in Greece, and on those name days, celebrations are not only multi-generational, but can involve a large part of the population!
Religion in Greece
Ninety-seven percent of Greeks are Greek Christian Orthodox. The rest of the population are Muslims, Roman Catholics and Jewish. Greece and Russia are the only countries to have such a big proportion of Christian Orthodox people. Greece is the only country in the world where an Eastern Orthodox Church is clearly recognized as a state religion.
Ancient Greek people recognized the major Greek gods and goddesses: Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Apollo, Artemis, Aphrodite, Ares, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Athena, Hermes, Demeter, Heracles, Hestia, Asclepius and Hera.
Greece is the birthplace of the Olympic Games, first recorded in 776 BC. The ancient Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, which was essentially rebuilt in 1895, hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.
