Greece and Cyprus National Holiday – Ochi Day
Greek name: Epetios tou Ohi
Modern Greeks the world over celebrate with gusto this holiday for in October 1940 during World War 2, Greek General Ioannis Metaxas defiantly said "OCHI" ("NOâ€ in Greek) to Italyâ€™s request to enter Greece in the war against Russia, then Allied to the West.Â Defiantly and reluctantly Greece was dragged into the war.
