Like any national anthem, I bet people only know the first verse (if they even know that)!

Martha said...

Very true. I used to know it once upon a time. Well, maybe not all of it :)

Kirk said...

I'd hate to have to memorize that.

Well Greece does possess a glorious history pre-BC, so I guess honouring all the heroes of those by-gone days may mean something.
Alexander the Great, Achilles and Hector of Troy just to mention 3 of them
