What's On in October

October is the month when ouzo and raki is distilled. Olives are gathered and taken to the press.

11th Oct - Local elections

25th Oct - Clocks go back 1 hour.

28th Oct - Oxi Day. National Holiday. Commemorates the Greek refusal to surrender to the Italians upon their ill-fated attempt to invade Greece in 1941.

The 10am Mass at Ekatontapiliani is followed by the schoolchildren’s parade (at about 10.30) to the Town Hall and traditional dancing. There is also a parade in Naoussa.


We commiserate with our friends Katie & Petros at Bit of Salt - they were burgled on the night of Sunday 27th September and had around one million drachmas worth of goods stolen.
