Retake Constantinople! Should be a nice project for the future.

Zito i 25 I Martiou!
Also Cesar Chavez day, a state holiday, here in Colorado. IIRC, it was traded for Columbus Day.
Agree with Odds Bodkin. It's hard for me to see March 25 pass without a sense of chagrin at the failure of the Megali Idea.
After 100 years of denial of the Christian genocides Turkey has the audacity to invite the descendants of the survivors back, presumably so they can finish the job. I can assure Turkey if we Greeks ever returned it would be only to take back Constantinople:http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/politics/2013/03/turkey-minorities-return-call.html#ixzz2Ox0OARDs
We knew thee of old,Oh, divinely restored,By the lights of thine eyesAnd the light of thy SwordFrom the graves of our slainShall thy valour prevailAs we greet thee again-Hail, Liberty! Hail!Long time didst thou dwellMid the peoples that mourn,Awaiting some voiceThat should bid thee return.Ah, slow broke that dayAnd no man dared call,For the shadow of tyrannyLay over all:And we saw thee sad-eyed,The tears on thy cheeksWhile thy raiment was dyedIn the blood of the Greeks.Yet, behold now thy sonsWith impetuous breathGo forth to the fightSeeking Freedom or Death.From the graves of our slainShall thy valour prevailAs we greet thee again-Hail, Liberty! Hail!
