For me, these next two weeks are really wonderful to actually get to experience in Greece. This first week, called Big Week, is really somber and quiet throughout the villages, but beginning Saturday after midnight the celebrations and parties begin and last for another whole week!
I have grown up in church.
When I say church, I literally mean many, many different kinds of churches. For background purposes let me explain a little more. My first memory of being in church was when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I played the lead in Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer. It sounds like a sweet story until I tell you that it was a tap dance performance, and it was my very first one. I must also mention that I am a huge momma’s girl; so much so that I slept by her bed for as long as she would allow, and then I continued to sneak down in the middle of the night and sleep outside of her door.
Pathetic. Endearing. Annoying. Sweet now, not then.
