The celebration of the “OXI” Day from the Greek Australians was impressive!

Greeks from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin, Brisbane and Perth celebrated with a unique way the “OXI” Day.

With great respect, they honored the people who sacrificed their lives in the war with the Italians and also honored the Anzacs who fought in the Battle of Crete.

In Sydney, there was a spectacular parade of military vehicles and tanks around the main streets of Thirlmere.  Almost 300 people attended this parade!

On Friday 28th October, also in Sydney, the Greek Associations honored the “OXI” Day in Anzac Memorial Hyde Park.

A great celebration for the “OXI” Day was also held by AHEPA NSW (there will be a reference for this event to an other article).

In Melbourne, the celebration was held at the church of St Efstathios where they put wreaths to the Shrine of Remembrance.

In Brisbane, the celebration of the “OXI” Day was held on 23rd October with a function in the church of Koimisis Theotokou and later they put wreaths to the monument outside the church.

After this the young Greek students told poems and danced greek traditional dances.  img_8618_28_october_1img_8618_28_october_2img_8618_28_october_3img_8618_28_october_4img_8618_28_october_5img_8618_28_october_6img_8618_28_october_7img_8618_28_october_8img_8618_28_october_9img_8618_28_october_10img_8618_28_october_11img_8618_28_october_12img_8618_28_october_13img_8618_28_october_14
