Hi Linda!!! :D
Thank you for checking on me so many times :D
It's been kind of rough over here and I can't be as active on spark as I used to be, but I'm still fighting in the weight loss arena... I haven;t given up! :)

I think it is an orthodox kind of thing, yeah. But if it's something only Greeks do I don't know.

Awww, thank you! :D This makes me so happy! I wish I was raised abroad! :( But no, it's just that I'm a language freak :p who's wanted all her life to live overseas and is fascinated by English/American {(gothic) literature}. I try to read a lot of stuff and practise any way that I can just for the heII of it... My dream is to leave Greece someday. But I really enjoy alternating Greek to other languages! It's so weird! :D

Thank you for the birthday wishes. emoticon I did a Pilates class for 90 minutes today, and since it was my first time, I surprised the teacher. I told her I've been doing some exercises on Spark, but she was still surprised I could do some of them. emoticon

I'm really glad to know this too, Joanna. Very interesting. So is this a "Greek Orthodox" kind of thing? Now I'm going to have to dig out a couple of books where the characters are all Armenian and they belong to a church which seems to me a bit like my limited knowledge of what we here in the US call Greek Orthodox. Why is your English so well-written? Were you raised some place other than Greece? If that's too personal, don't answer. I'm just fascinated by you and your observations at such a young age!!

Thanks for the explanation, Joanna. I wonder what 7th Jan holds for you. Will you still be at home?

my parents are religious people (like most greeks of their age lol)... in Greece each name has a saint who protects it (and the people who are named after it. mostly each saint protects his/her own name). so, I got two names: joanna vasiliki. which means 2 saint protectors who we celebrate 2 different days, jan 1 and jan 7.
Vasiliki comes from the greek male name vasilis (our santa claus is saint vasilis). so in jan 1 it's actually santa claus day here too. :D
anyway, they usually buy me a birthday cake and a few small gifts on jan 7, but on jan 1 nobody really pays attention becuase it isn't my main name.
