    OMG!!! That’s the church we went to when I was a kid!!! So much Greek-ness…so little understanding (they spoke all in Greek back then! I should have understood it, but, I didn’t). I just remember as a child, having to walk around the church 3 times around midnight the night before Greek Easter. In NY, it was usually cold…and I was ALWAYS tired!!!! :)
