Please keep this as factual as you can and if possible quote sources.
As long as the thread does not get too unwieldy we'll allow comment and opinion on the data in here but if it starts to get busy then comment and opinion will be deleted in favour of data so that information does not get hidden.

If you don't want your to have your comment possibly be deleted (after 3 or 4 days and purely for space/clarity reasons not because of the comment content) then please start a thread outside of this one.

Monday, March 25th 2019, is a Bank Holiday in Greece, celebrating the Anniversary of Greece's Independence from the Ottoman Turks in 1821. The Annunciation of the Virgin Mary, a major religious holiday in Greece, and Name Day of Evangelos (Vangelis) and Evangelia, also fall on the same date.

Main shops, supermarkets banks, government offices etc will be closed.
