The Omnipresent OPA!
"Opa!" is one of the most popular expression in the Greek lexicon. It is a word of celebration, good cheer, joy, and enthusiasm. It can also be used to express surprise, worry, disbelief, or concern. Opa encapsulates warmth and compassion for life. An Opa! declared over a broken item can mean ‘Hey, accidents happen, big deal, life is too short to worry about this unimportant matters’. An Opa! exclaimed at a celebration can mean “This is the important stuff - life is short - celebrate.”
