I'll always remember the word 'χειμώνας' from that scene in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where the Greek dad tries to cite it as the origin of the word kimono xD

He was the real star of that movie.

For those interested, kimono is actually from the Japanese verb 着る-"kiru", "to wear" and 物-"mono" "thing". So a kimono is "a thing you wear". Although the explanation in My Big Fat greek wedding was much funnier.

Thank you for the actual root of the word. But yes for funny we have to go with the film version.
