☯Ancient History and Modern Culture☯
Athens got a lot of popularity form its legends and its rich culture. Now it's time for us to take a brief tour of what this city has to offer. In ancient Athens almost every citizen was polytheistic or, worshiped more than one god; in fact the Ancient Greeks had over 25 different gods and goddesses combined! As a matter of fact in ancient legends the people of present day Athens had to choose their main god to worship and who would be the protector of the city. Athena the goddess of war, wisdom, and strategy was competing against Poseidon god of the sea and storms. Poseidon gave the Athenians a white marble salt marble fountain while Athena gave them an olive tree. The people of Athens considered the olive tree to provide more needs and is renewable unlike the fountain that only provides decorative purposes and contains salt water that is undrinkable and, due to this Athena was declared the winner and this was also how Athens was named; it was named by Athena⁂!Although most citizens of present day Athens don't share the same beliefs as their ancestral heritage, they both still have somethings in common such as proper hand waving; it is considered an insult to show your palm with fingers extended, therefore when some Greeks wave they have their palm closed into a fist then wave! And you'll see the majority of people there have a western style of clothing which is basically casual shorts and shirts. So, if you feel bored and want to learn more visit multiple places in Athens, Greece and you shall find your answers about the past and present .
❀The Local Lingo❀
Greek is also a language that is one of the oldest spoken languages spoken today, and this civilization started around 700 B.C.; so that means this language has been spoken for about 2713 years! This cool language is the most commonly spoken in Greece but, I'm pretty sure you can put 2 and 2 together and figure that out by now and when you visit this place I dare you to learn this language before your departure to leave. Even though Greek is the most common spoken language in Greece that doesn't mean people like us have to fret due to the fact that most Greeks in Greece also understand a bit of the English tongue. Also, the Greek alphabet isn't to different from the English. The only difference is that it has 24 characters and sentence structure is different. So to satisfy your curiosity here are examples of the language...Δ is the triple sided letter DELTA, Θ is the round letter THETA. and Ω is the horseshoe collector OMEGA. And the quirky sentence structure differs to what we would normally put for example the sentence "The big red ball fell down the stairs" would be in Greek "The red ball that is big fell down the stairs". The two simple sentences have slight differences at the beginning of the sentence but then start to be the same towards the end. So, in conclusion the interesting language of the Athenians is part of what makes Athens all the more exciting.
