Athenians never take their shoes off even when entering a home. They are very hospitable, but invite guests for a dinner or lunch quite rarely. The period starting from 2 to 6 p.m. is considered the time of day rest, so it would be better to refrain from phone calls on this time. You should also not call and after 10 p.m. as it will also be the sign of bad manners.
Every year on October 28 an unusual holiday is celebrated in Athens. The holiday’s name is Day of Ohi (the meaning of this word has been already mentioned). On this day Greece said "no" to occupation of Italy. So this holiday has been celebrated since the Second World War. Local residents are very funny people who like entertainments. There is simply no weekend in this city that has no folk festivals and celebrations. On Sundays main squares of Athens become the location of interesting musical and theatrical performances; during the days of national celebrations the local people carefully decorate the streets of the city with flower garlands and beautiful placards.
