“My Big Fat Greek Christmas”

 

We saw the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” at Brunswick’s own Eveningstar Theater some years back, and howled at it.  A friend who went with us has a Greek sister-in-law, and knows her family pretty well.  She assured us that the movie was an accurate portrayal of Greek family character, traditions, and eccentricities.

It remains one of our favorite movies; if you haven’t seen it, you should.  If your sensibilities and sense of humor are even remotely close to ours, it will bring tears to your eyes, in more ways than one.

Our daughter’s neighborhood has a house that reminds us of the family patriarch’s house in the movie.

Well, you should see it at Christmas!  Now the parallel to “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” is truly compelling and unavoidable.

To prove the point, and provide some Christmas cheer appropriate to the season, we pass along these photos – one in daylight, and one at night with full, and we mean full, big, fat illumination!

Trust us, the night time photo doesn’t do the place justice; our usually reliable professional photog just didn’t have his A-game tonight.  We may get him to go back and video the place so you can see all the motion characters and hear the music.

We’ll close with this for now: Merry Christmas, loyal readers!

And here’s hoping Santa brings a bottle of Windex down your Chimney!

Opa!
