As all of you well know I’m an American Greek. While saddened by the course of my family’s root country I try to remember the things I was taught growing up that made me proud of it’s rich history.
It is part of that history I’d like to delve into today. My roots are literally spread across Greece. My father’s side of the family is from an island, I won’t tell you which hint hint. My mother’s side is more mainland, not telling either may save that for a future session.
Greece, as all countries, has seen it share of war. There is a particular battle that sticks in my mind, I am proud of my people’s relentless spirit that fought hard against a foe that was more “well equipped.” What I would like from you is to tell me first, what island holds this part of my heritage, and second, to which battle I’m referring. The island is one that is extremely self-reliant. It is rich in music, poetry, and so much more, and the sites are absolutely breathtaking. Please place your answers in the comments below. I don’t think I’ll need to give too many hints, as I have already. Although if needed, rest assured I will. Thanks for taking part, and always reading! Long ashes to all! -Evan
Welcome to the 13 for 2013 giveaway. This contest will be a bit different than what you may be used to. Usually giveaways are geared around followers and gaining more. While I’d love to have more followers I’d also like you to get to know me a little more. As the title of my site states, and through some banter between myself and fellow BOTL’s on twitter, I’m Greek. An American Greek. Yes I am proud of my heritage but I was born here in the USA and have always been proud of that fact. So, one would think that my site may have a Greek theme to it. The traditional colors of the Greek flag are blue and white, which you really won’t find on my site. However, the one color on my site, red, is still a homage to something Greek, that I am very passionate about.(no its not communism smart asses ;-)) I’d like you to tell me what that is. That’s right this one may not be as easy as you thought, but look at the spread. These are all great cigars and being that there are 13 of them, I thought maybe we should mix it up a bit. IMPORTANT; If you are Greek, please do not enter this contest, the answer is too easy for you, and please do not share the answer with anyone. Don’t worry this is not the last of my giveaways so if you feel left out, not to worry there will be more.
As I said, I would like you to tell me why the color red has significance to my Greek heritage. Post your guesses in the comment section of this post. DO NOT POST THE GUESSES ON TWITTER OR FACEBOOK. The guess is to be here in the comment section. If I see that it is getting too hard, I will drop hints. Good luck to all, and thanks in advance for participating. As always thanks for reading and long ashes to all! -Evan
