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.

* St. George's Day in Greece

St George's Day is a moveable date in Greece. It is normally celebrated on the 23rd April, but if this date falls before Easter it is moved to the first Monday after Easter - i.e. Easter Monday.
