Farm Girl has spent this term looking at social, cultural, and economic rights, roles and responsibilities with the emphasis on families around the world. Laura Ingalls, Hinemoa and Tutanekai, and Psyche and Eros were all compared to her own situation but the best fun as far as Farm Girl was concerned was studying Greek culture with the aid of the internet, the library, and that undeniable authority on the modern Greek family: My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Along the way, a Homestead Greek Night was proposed and Farm Girl started planning. The invitations were sent, the menu decided, the entertainment sourced, and the decorations constructed.
Of course, it was to be a dress-up event.
Afterwards Poseidon, a Senator, and Demis Roussos joined traditional Grecian (ancient and modern) in a youtube guided sirtaki lesson and danced off the baklava, spanakopita, and meat-heavy feast (and ouzo chaser).
Greek Night on the Homestead; a definite excellence for Farm Girl. Opa!

Love the Inquiry celebration. Looks like all national standards have been met and possibly exceeded. Love the facial hair Sharon, Bugger the tweezers lets just go with it eh… 😉
Exactly. And I can wholly understand Demis’ caftan preference. You can eat a ton more baklava without the restriction of a waistband😀
Wow, it must have been a fun evening. I love all things Greek.
It was a lot of very silly, very noisy fun 😊
Ah, spanakopita, Mrs T’s favourite.
I love the beard! Makes me think I ought to cultivate my burgeoning facial hair too. I also love ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ as my girls know ( I cite examples of woman-power from it regularly). Looks like you had a fabulous time!
It was great fun 🙂
Any excuse for a party and a great example of your ability to make your own fun!
It’s a very overlooked talent 🙂
