Opa! Yamas! Halara! There are so many Greek words to admire. Here are a handful of the many Greek words that have an extra special place in my heart.
Siga Siga, pronounced see-gah, see-gah, translates into “slowly slowly.” It’s a way to signal someone to slow down. Walk instead of run. Sip instead of chug. Linger instead of hurry.
There’s something special about Koulourakia cookies (pronounced koo-loo-rah-kee-ah).
My Yiayia (Grandma in Greek) taught me how to crochet when I was eleven-years-old.
