Entertainment

For entertainment in ancient Greece, they would play sports. They loved sports so much that they made a special game that was held every four years called the Olympic Games.
There were two types, summer and winter Olympics. Unlike today, they did not get silver or gold medals for placing a position in the games. You never got anything to represent that you have won the games or placed in the games.
Every time the Olympics were around they would stop wars for a bit and do the games.

During the games they would play naked because only men were allowed to play and go to the games women were not.
Women had their own game since they couldn't join the Olympics called the Heraia. Like the Olympics these games were held every four years. There were three different running groups for each girls of different ages.
