Ancient Greece - Traditions and Daily life
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman

1     In ancient Greece, life was different than it is today. Ancient Greeks both worked hard and played hard. There was always work to be done--hunting, fishing, caring for the family home. But then there were also lots of fun things to do, especially in Greek cities. There, you could see dramatic plays and listen to music.
2     Most Greeks lived in the country. Each family's country home started small. Then, as the family could afford to, rooms were added onto the house. This meant that Greek houses were often very odd-shaped. Also, because of the odd-shaped houses, streets through the Greek countryside were almost never straight!
3     In ancient Greece, men worked outside of the home, while women were homemakers. Sometimes, Greek families left their baby girls outside to die. This was because many Greeks thought girls couldn't help the family much.
