The image above is used when I present my lesson on the four seasons. There is so much for the kids to look at... what is each person holding? What are the differences? Can they tell what season each person represents? What are some things that are around them that gives clues? What are the seasonal fruit in Greece? You will be amazed at the response you get, and the kids will remember the artwork and the artist. Not only that, in your lesson you have discussed clothing, colors, fruit, and flowers!
According to Richard Kessler, executive director of the Center for Arts Education in New York City "research shows that children who spend time in school doing visual art, performing music or dance or even acting in a ply gain a whole set of creative and analytical skills that are quickly disappearing from the rest of the curriculum." Why not cultivate these skills in our children by showing them what talent Greece has to offer! Show your child Greek art, teach them a Greek dance, encourage them to learn Greek songs and poetry. It will be a memorable experience for both you and your child.

Reading in English from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
Κοντάκιον. Ήχος β’.
Αρχιστράτηγοι Θεού, λειτουργοί θείας δόξης, των ανθρώπων οδηγοί, και άρχηγοι Ασωμάτωv, το συμφέροv ημίv αιτήσασθε, και το μέγα έλεος, ως τωv Ασωμάτων Αρχιστράτηγοι.
"O Leaders of the heavenly armies, although we are always unworthy, we ask you that with your prayers you may circle us with the protection of the wings of your angelic glory. Watch over us as we bow low and earnestly cry out to you: “Deliver us from trouble, O Princes of the heavenly armies.”

Life of St. Demetrios in Greek from Matia.gr
Life of St. Demetrios in English from
the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America http://www.goarch.org/special/demetrios/index_html
Μέγαν εύρατο εν τοις κινδύνοις
Σε υπέρμαχον η οικουμένη
Αθλοφόρε τα έθνη τροπούμενον.
Ως ουν Λυαίου καθείλες την έπαρσιν,
εν τω σταδίω θαρρύνας τον Νέστορα, ούτως,
Άγιε Μεγαλομάρτυς Δημήτριε, Χριστόν τον Θεόν ικέτευε,
δωρήσασθαι ημίν το μέγα έλεος.
Troparion (Tone 3)
O victorious Demetrios, thou wast a protection for the world and an invincible soldier of Christ. Thou didst inspire Nestor to humble Lyaios. Intercede with Christ our God to save us

"The Anniversary of NO", that we so endearingly call OXI (ochi) Day commemorates Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas' rejection of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Mussolini on October 28, 1940. Who would have thought that a poor, small country like Greece would have been so brave in their simple response of "OXI" No!. No, Greece would not allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy strategic locations. Yes, they would follow their simple answer with bravery of heart and spirit and mark the beginning of Greece's participation in World War II. Since 1942, October 28th has been celebrated in Greek communities around the world with programs and parades.
Join in the celebration of OXI day by coloring your own Greek flag to display at home:
