Did You Know. . .

that it is believed that oregano originated in Greece?

that the word oregano actually is a Greek word?  It means "joy of the mountains".

that couples who had been married in Ancient Greece, were crowned with wreaths of oregano?

that oregano used to be put on graves in ancient times? It was meant to give peace to those who left this earth.

that the Greeks of long ago thought cows had better, tastier meat if they ate oregano?
