Greek Traditional Music and Instruments – Greek Culture for kids

Greek DanceGreek music and dance have a very long history.  In ancient Greece, music was performed to accompany poetry or plays.  Some Greek folk dance rhythms are taken from the poetic metre from ancient dramas.  During Christian times and up until the present,  instrumental music, dance and song have been important parts in special events and holidays like baptisms, saints’ days, engagements, weddings, and harvest festival, Easter and May Day.  Wherever Greek people gather, there is music and songs.

Many Greek dances are done in large groups at big community celebrations. Dances are done in circles or in lines. There are over 4,000 traditional Greek dances!

Traditional instruments from Greece include the plucked stringed instrument called a bouzouki from the lute family, a kind of bagpipe known as a gaida made of sheep or goat hide, and toumbi a kind of large double-headed drum played with sticks.Gaida

Common Greek Surnames – Greek Culture for kids

Throughout history, ancient Greeks did not have official last names, but they did have some patronymic characteristics (i.e., Achilles was Achilles Pileidis from his father Pileas).

“Patronymics” means that Greek surnames usually come from the first name of the father of the family. So if someone’s last name is Demetriou, that means that the surname came from a man named Demetrios.

The matronymic names refer to those that cane from the mothers’ name, the national or toponymic names refer to surnames created by names of towns or districts. There are also Greek surnames referring to a profession, or the paronymic ones, referring to different abilities, or even animals.

Until a few years ago, women took their husband’s surname. Eventually, they were able to keep both surnames. Today, they are free to choose whether they want to keep their surname or add the one of their husband.

Some of the most common Greek surnames you can find include Papadopoulos, Papadakis, Ioannou, Georgiou and Demetriou.

Greek Fashion – Greek Culture for kids

Ancient GreeksMuch of today’s fashionable clothing was once simple clothing worn by ancient Greeks. In Ancient Greece people wore outfits made from one piece of fabric with holes cut out for the head called the peplos and chiton. The peplos was sleeveless and the chiton covered part of the arms. In colder weather, people could wear a cloak called a himation on top.

Drapes were worn by both men and women in ancient Greece. Fastened with pins and brooches, the drapes looked elegant. However, in Greece today, drapes are designed only for women. One shoulder drapes are very popular, too.

Gladiator SandalsGladiator sandals were the official footwear of the gladiators who fought in the coliseum. Today, these sandals are available in a variety of colors, sizes and styles for both men and women. Jewelry is designed with motifs of the Greek Mythology such as gods and goddesses just like long ago. Both semi-precious and precious stones are used. Flowered and jeweled headbands are also worn.

So it is little wonder that the ancient clothing of drapes, tunics, cloaks, jewelry and sandals are still a part of the clothing fashion in Greece today.

Today, the traditional Greek folk costumes vary in the different regions throughout the mainland of Greece and the surrounding islands. Many traditional outfits for men on mainland Greece feature a kind of skirt called a foustanella. On the Greek islands, a traditional men’s outfit is baggy pants called vraka worn with a white shirt, a sleeveless coat, a sash, a jacket and a tasseled hat. Most traditional women’s outfits in Greece are made up of simple cotton dress with a sleeveless wool vest over it. Women added colorful aprons, sashes and head scarves to their outfits.

Greek Fun Facts – Greek Culture for kids

Greek Culture

Greek Flag

Greece is one of the oldest cultures in Europe.  Ancient Greek culture has had a strong influence on the government, the arts and ideas for the western world.

The Greeks had the first democracy in the world.

They were the first people to have an alphabet.  In fact the word “alphabet” comes from the first two letters of the Greek alphabet:  alpha and beta.  Today, the English letters of A, B, E and O come from the Greek alphabet.

Olympic GamesThe Olympic Games started in ancient Greece.  They were held every four years in honor of Zeus, the king god.  Today we celebrate the Olympic Games with similar traditions of the early Greeks.  We use olive leaf crowns for the opening and closing ceremonies.

Ancient Greeks understood mathematics.  They discovered many geometry formulas. Greece also was home to many famous scientists. Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the earth. Aristarchus discovered that the earth revolved around the sun instead of the other way around. More famous Greek scientists include Archimedes who was able to explain levers and pulleys and Hipparchus who created a system to explain how all the planets and stars move.

MoussakaSome traditional Greek dishes are avgolimono, an egg and lemon soup, moussaka, a dish made of eggplant and meat, and baklava, a dessert made of nuts, honey and thin layers of pastry.  Because so much of Greece is along the coast there is a lot of fish and seafood in traditional Greek dishes.  Olives and olive oil are a very important part of traditional Greek food.

Hopscotch to Craps; Traditional Greek Children’s Games

CRIPPLING: The  children  rule  a  rectangle  on  the  cement  and  using  parallel  lines , they  divide it  into 4 parts , the stairs”. The  first  3  should be equivalent to one another , but  the last one  is  about  3x  bigger  than  the  others  and  it  is   called “king”. The children number the stairs and they take it off for the turn to be determined, but every child gets to play and take a turn. The  child  who  goes first , takes  a  small  flat  stone , which is  called  the team” and  throw  it  to the first “stair”.  Then, crippling with his or her left leg he/she jumps with the right one from one “stair” to another “stair”. When he/she  reaches  the  “king” he/she can rest  or  turn , trying not to put down  the  curved  leg . Then he/she makes the  same  road  backwards crippling, and when  he/she  reaches the “stair where the  stone is , he/she  hits  it with the  edge of his/her  shoe , throwing  it  out , he/she jumps and  steps on  it . The same should he/she does with the rest “stairs”. The  child  who  is  playing , must  not  put  down his/her  “clippled” leg , step  with his/her  “good” leg  some  line  or  throw the “team” on a line. If he/she makes a mistake, he/she loses   his/her turn and the next child plays. If the child finishes with all the “stairs” without making a single mistake, he/she makes a “rubo”. The child who collects three “rubos” is the winner of the game.

Caps: This game is played outside. Two players are allowed to play this game at a time. Both players have their own cap. They sit down about 2 feet away from each other. In the middle there should be a hole 2cm deep. The players play in turns. In the beginning the first player pushes his cap towards the hole. The first player that manages to push his cap into the hole wins. This game is for ages 6 years and older.

Hopscotch: Draw 8 squares or more on the ground with the chalk. The squares must be one on the left and one on the right and show a rectangle. Put the rock in front of the first square. Then move towards the first square, jump on your leg and try to push the rock with one leg into the first square. Then, if you started from the left square, push the rock to the right and vice versa. You must push the rock into all the squares without moving it out of the square. If you push the rock out of the square that you want to move into, you lose. It is played in Greece, just as it is played here in the United States.
