Christmas advice to Cretans who live with their mother
Merry Christmas, everyone!
This is you, who have been fasting for over a month
This is a lovely bunch of buttery, sugary, traditional kourabiedes, to which you have been looking forward like crazy
These might be your poor mother and grandmother, who have been preparing the house for the Christmas celebrations -on top of their day-work. And every little part of their body is hurting due to exhaustion.
This is a plate, which you should hold under your chin while you are eating your kourabiedes, so that you don’t drop them -or parts of them- on the floor
This is the carpet of your living room
This is the safety equipment you are going to need to defend yourself in case that you forget about the plate
