    Take a Trip to Athens, Greece in May

    The month of May ushers in with May Day,

    which is a national holiday full of parades

    and various other festivities that all take

    place on May 1st. The first day of the month

    also brings about the Feast of Flowers,

    which allows everyone to celebrate an

    appreciation of the beautiful flowers that

    bloom in spring by focusing on the ancient

    roots with the goddess Demeter in one of

    their festivals.

    Later on during May, all of the ancient customers of the country continue

    when they observe Anastenaria, which is a holiday that observes fire walking

    over pits that are loaded with coals. The holiday is often celebrated near

    Langada and Serres in Aghia Eleni just outside of Thessaloniki. Take one of

    the organized tours to see all that the ritual envelopes.

    In the middle of the month on May 18th, International Monuments Day takes

    place. You can come out and enjoy free admission into all of the various

    archaeological sites and museums throughout the country. It doesnt get any

    better than free.

    Have you ever heard about the Battle of Crete? Well, in Greece they

    commemorate it in a number of different places all throughout the month of

    May. Around the anniversary on May 22nd, there is a major observance of

    the battle that takes place in Heraklion. Many of the families in the area will

    light a candle to remember their loved ones that were lost more than 60

    years ago during this battle. It was an extremely dark passage that took

    place in Greece.

    During the last weeks in May, you can come out and check out the Medieval

    Festival over on Rhodes. In the Old City, you can enjoy the annual flower

    festival that fills the streets. Regardless of what the conditions might be

    outside, the area is absolutely stunning. With all of the beautiful flowers

    adorning the town, it brings a splash of color to the beautiful stone walls.

    Make sure and take plenty of pictures as you stroll through the old town.

    Beyond all of the beautiful flowers, many of the various booths will provide

    you with an abundant selection of wines and delicacies that make Rhodes a

    spot you dont want to miss out on while in the country.

    By the time May rolls around in Greece, it is normally warm enough for you

    to head out and take a swim in the beautiful water. The weather can

    fluctuate from cool to quite sweltering, especially when the end of May

    draws near. Above all, take the time to stroll through the country and take

    in all of the different sites and festivals they have to offer in the month of

    May. You wont be disappointed with your decision to vacation in Greece.
