2009 Hellenic Almanac Cover The Hellenic Heritage Institute has published several "Kazamias". What is a kazamia? It’s an Almanac! The Oxford English Dictionary defines “almanac” as "an annual table, or (more usually) a book of tables, containing a calendar of months and days, with astronomical data and calculations, ecclesiastical and other anniversaries, besides other "useful information", and, in former days, astrological and astro-meteorological forecasts". The variety of meanings that can attach to the term useful information is a key to understanding both the longevity of the almanac and the difficulty of explaining what it is. As might be expected of a form that has flourished for several hundred years, the almanac has shown a capacity to adapt to changing intellectual climates.
