Greece has a big range in traditions , therefore i represent you the thessalian wedding tradition to show a part of the thessalic culture and greek culture in general which is very rich.
Thessaly (known as Aeloia in antiquity, until the Dark Ages) lies in central Greece and borders the regions of Macedonia on the north, Epirus on the west, Central Greece on the south and the Aegean Sea on the east. The Thessaly Periphery also includes the Sporades islands.
It’s major communities are Kardítsa (Καρδίτσ��±) Lárisa (Λάρισα) Néa Ionía (Νέα Ιωνία) Tríkala (Τρίκαλα) Vólos (Βόλος) Elassona (Ελασσόνα) Farsala (Φάρσαλα)
The Plain of Thessaly, which lies between Mount Oeta/Othrys and Mount Olympus, is the site of the battle between the Titans and the Olympians.
Thessaly is also the leading cattle-raising area of Greece, and Vlach shepherds shift large flocks of sheep and goats seasonally between higher and lower elevations….
In mythology, Thessaly was homeland of the heroes Achilles and Jason, as well of mythological creatures and peoples, Centaurs, Lapiths , Phlegyans and Myrmidons. Ancient tribes in Thessaly mentioned by Homer or other poets were: Aeolians, Magnetes, Perrhaebi and Pelasgians.

    Πατινάδα του γάμου με τον Νίκο Φιλιππίδη στο κλαρίνο,
    τον Κώστα Φιλιππίδη στο λαούτο
    και τον Χρυσόστομο Μητροπάνο στο τραγούδι.
    Οι γυναικείες φορεσιές που βλέπουμε είναι το κλασσικό ντύσιμο της Καραγκούνας…

    This one important part of YouTube, showing that a culture (Hellenic) also has sub-cultures, dependent on where in the country. But then, I have always loved Greece and the way of life.

    Back in 1980, when I got married, we had a “dollar dance” but until I saw this video, I had no idea its origins were Greek! Very interesting. I like and am interested in learning more about all aspect of Greek culture as well as other cultures throughout the Mediterranean and Middle (Near) East.

    Don’t worry. People are defined by their personality not descent and every culture has it’s traditions and beauty no matter the policies and politics.
