OXI MERA No Day celebrating the Greece entry into WW II on the side of the allies against first Italy and later Germany.
Here on Paros it is sunny, warm and calm. We have no military to speak of so it is the day all the school children dress in their school uniforms or white shirts and dark trousers or skirts for those schools without uniforms and march in a parade with the brass band and anyone else who has a uniform. Lots of flag waving.
