On February 9 we celebrate international Greek language day. Started in 2017 to coincide with the annual commemoration of Greece’s national poet, Dionysios Solomos (April 8, 1798 – February 9, 1857), whose lyrics are featured in the Greek National Anthem, International Greek Language Day aims to promote awareness of the language’s unparalleled influence on other writing systems around the world.
