This year the winter has been heavier than usual in Greece. Lots of incessant rain, crazy, strong winds, grey, gloomy days, one after another, cold and snow in many areas, even those not accustomed to this kind of winter. But today is the first day of March, and it has been a sunny day. As it should be. Children even put on their red and white entwined string bracelets, 'so that the sun won't burn them', as tradition has it.
