Baklava Outside of the Science Center

The Harvard College Hellenic Society is selling baklava outside of the Science Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today in celebration of Thanksgiving.

We at Flyby never knew that there was a connection between Thanksgiving and Greece, but some Googling reveals that the Greeks used to celebrate a holiday called Thesmophoria each November that commemorated earth's natural bounty and yield.

Whatever the case may be about the connection between these two Th-initialed events, the flaky dessert is absolutely delicious and worth a taste (or two).
