kalo mina!

in greece on the first of each month they say "kalo mina" which basically glosses to "have a good month." it's like celebrating happy new year, but more often (deep!). for a long time now i have enjoyed the idea that each month we get to start fresh. it is september first...kalo mina! suddenly i feel all shiny and hopeful (we ride rollercoasters into the ocean...).

summercrush: is this for the lunar or the gregorian calendar?
me: gregorian
me: you're supposed to say it back to me, now
summercrush: καλω μινα
me: showoff
