Video of the Day - Thessaloniki, Greece

Country: Thessaloniki, Greece
Video Posted: June 12, 2007

I have this aunt, she's Greek. Every Christmas when my poly faith, totally interracial family would get together, she would point at things around the room and tell us how they were first invented by Greeks.

Pottery? Greek. Architecture? Greek. Food? Greek. Even in the face of insurmountable evidence, like the many other cultures around the Mediterranean that made pots, built buildings and had food, she would adamantly insist... Greek First.

Hey Kathy? Not this time! hehehehe.

Oh wait... Greeks might have invented hugging.

I think I lost this next Christmas argument and it's only April. 

Ok, picking on my family week is over. Otherwise I'll be sharing videos of Scotland and rambling about how my great grandfather on my mother's side was Scottish from the Isle of Skye and THAT is why my brother ended up a violent alcoholic.

Did you know that you're my family? Every last one of you.

Get ready for an emoticon....


Happy Whatever Day, Free Hugs Family!
