The 1st of May is not far and the Greeks celebrate the date as a national holiday. We also make wreaths of flowers that we cut from the fields and decorate the house entrance with them. The reason for it is to welcome spring in an official way and make the basis for a good summer time. We use “margarites” the small daisies that you can see almost everywhere. “Margarites” are also very popular among the Greek people as a game, the love game. You pick a daisy and think of a person that might loves you. You start cutting the petals one by one and saying loves me, loves me not. Each petal stands for one phrase. Once all the petals are gone, the last one is to tell you the truth. If it stands for “loves me”, you are a lucky person. If it stands for “loves me not”, just pick another daisy and start over! We never quit!
P.S. there are songs written only for this daisy love game!!!!
