Holidays & Observances in Greece

Greece is a southern European country made up of many different islands as well as a main land. It has a rich cultural history that the modern people are still strongly connected to. Art, architecture, and philosophy all have roots in ancient Greek culture. The ancient polytheistic religion of Greece is no longer practiced there, but it is still an important part of the modern culture. Greek mythology is studied not only in Greece, but all around the world. Today Greece is one of the most religious countries in Europe, with most of the population belonging to the Greek Orthodox Church. Christian holidays are very important across the country. Many of them are given as days of work by most businesses.
