Upper Darby, PA – Oxi day celebrations were hosted at the St. Demetrios Greek school on Friday evening. The pre-K through 8th-grade program read poems and sand songs based on the historic event.

Oxi Day on October 28 commemorated the anniversary when former military general and Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas said, “No” to an ultimatum made by Italian Prime Minister Benito Mussolini to allow Italian forces to occupy strategic locations in Greece or otherwise face war back in 1940.
